look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a fairly clear deep golden with a lingering cream head.

Floral hops and toasted malt dominate the aroma, with a hint of resin and citrus closing things out.

Flavor reveals resin and pine at the forefront, on a backbone of lightly toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter. A touch of citrus adds intrigue.

Body is moderate, with carbonation a touch on the high side. There's light alcohol warmth.

Fairly moderate in aroma and flavor, with nice citrus underpinnings. Not the best of the fresh hopped beers, but a decent brew.

Serving type: on-tap

Light copper colored, very fine carbonation, minimal bubbles on top. There's a heavy citrus and pine smell, sharp but pleasing. A dry tasting beer, bitter but with just enough malty sweetness not to make you pucker. Not overly complex in terms of its flavors. There's a grassy/vegetable flavor, and some caramel notes, too. For an ESB, it is light in its body. Very drinkable, especially late in the year.
