Pungent citrus hoppy resinous tones permeate throughout this beer. It is tremendously hop forward. The smell reminds me of opening a hop bag before I pour the contents into boiling wort. This is very crisp but not too dry. The hops linger on the tongue for a good while. Substantially bitter and very refreshing.

P- Als of Hampden

A- copper color with poor head and average lacing. head dissipates rapidly. clear and highlighted.

S- piney caramel hops/malts mixture is nice on the nose.

F- Pine hops an sweet caramel malts. The pine over rides the caramel but it has a nice undertone of floral flavors as well.

M- hops and light bodied. simple

O- not a bad ESB...I have had a few and this is just above average. good beer.

Medium amber , clear with small off head that settles to ring with patches of foam.
Nose is cracker malts and pine floral hops.
Taste follows with caramel and crackers followed in the middle with hops bite and lingering hops bitterness in a nice way.
mouthfeel is about right
Good seasonal warmer
