22 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A two finger head was poured that reduced to a thin puffy layer. It is a pale orange yellow color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Nice citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, herbal, and piney hops with caramel and bready malts to finish things out.

Taste: The hops are juicy smooth rolling right off your tongue and you have a nice malt base to even things out. Got tastier as it warmed and this beer grew on me with every sip too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, slight bitterness, and a little chewy.

Overall: A hard find here in the Boston area. No bottle dating and hard to know how long it has sat on the shelves. Either way, I'd have to say the beer was somewhat fresh and the hops held up nice. I'll go back to the same store and get another bottle.
