Pours a hazy orange-gold, with a small off-white head and a wall of lacing.
Nose is citrusy, a little yeast also. Not a big nose.
Taste starts off with a citrusy hops and some lightly sweet, biscuity malt, just a bit toasty, made sharper by the firm carbonation, and a bit of a dry. Spicy yeast note. Hops turn more resiny around mid-palate, and then the yeast takes over with a big dryness - it's like the taste is just sucked into a wall of off-dryness, from which emerges a nice, lingering pine bitterness to complement the yeast. Dryness lets up just a bit after awhile, letting the flavor of the yeast peek through carrying just a bit of the biscuity malt.
Mouthfeel is firmly carbonated, medium bodied, just a bit oily. I would drink this beer again, for sure.
Serving type: on-tap

Not a review, but wanted to clarify the chemical structure on the bottle. Believe that it is Humulone. More information is found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humulone. Cortisol also has C21H30O5, but the structure does not match what is printed on the bottle. Nice play on "Hugh Malone Ale" (http://hughmalone.com/).
