This brew pours a lighter yellow orange with a slight amount of head that fades quickly leaving very little lacing. The carbonation seems moderate and the brew is very clear and filtered looking. The smell is... subtle hop bitterness with a sweetness I assume comes from the malt. This has a much lighter and herbal smelling hop, with a slight vegetable tinge to it. The malt smells a little bit one note, and that note is caramel to me.

An earthy and bitter hoppyness hit first followed by a mixture of a light and toffee like malt. The hops also carry a kind of veggie taste. This completely separate hop profile feels layered on top of the malt in the way I taste it. That being said the flavor isn't horrible but the whole beer feels like a one off, maybe not carried all the way through. The mouth feel is too watery and the flavors are good, just in the wrong places, IMHO.
