Poured from the bottle into a snifter.
Pours a nice honey color, a touch of haze with a real nice head two fingers high. Looks really nice.
Smells great. Nice and hoppy. Maybe a touch of tangy maltiness in back.
Tastes really nice. Interesting taste here, curious on the hop bill as the hop profile was unique. An interesting tasting beer.
Mouthfeel was nice. Inviting.
A good beer, interesting flavor.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours mustard yellow, lighter on bottom, hazy on top. Light white foam sits as a cap. Malty floral nose. Fresh bright citrus taste, buzzy carbonation. Fruitily floral. Some biscuit background. Insistent hop at the close. Boozy finish, hits hard.
