Consumed February 13th, 2013 at The Fat Dog.

Beer is a medium burnished copper with a 2 finger, off-white creamy head.

Aroma of grassy, pine hops.

Fairly restrained caramel and toasty malt. Moderate bitterness seems strong in comparison to malt. Slight pine and citrus flavor on finish.

Mouth feel unremarkable, save for a little creaminess.

Overall, quite average.

Acquired as an extra in a trade with WestCoastBrew2, thanks bud. Poured into a 14 oz Hop Leap Tulip.

Appearance: Clear, orange/amber color. Pure white head, 2 fingers, creamy, great retention and lacing. Great looking beer.

Smell: Not a ton on the nose, smells of some clean lemon and pine, a bit of citrus fruit, but not a whole lot.

Taste: Clean, refreshing, and crisp. Not too hoppy, not too malty. A little bitter on the end. Very easy to drink.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, very clean and crisp but smooth as well, leaves the palate dry. Nice.

Overall: A great session beer, perfect for a 6-pack to watch a game and eat a bunch of greasy food. Not something I'd seek out for the taste alone, but the whole package is attractive.
