400th review. 750ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A - Effervescent and slightly hazy pale golden coloration. Huge bubbly head displayed some good staying power.

S - Quite hoppy, smells like a fresh IPA. Yeast and lemon notes are also present, but are easily dominated.

T - Perfume on the tongue, and a little like champagne, but that could be psychological knowing which yeast is used. Pepper and lemon peel make up the profile, with a floral finish.

M - Crisp light body, sharp carbonation that works very well here. Finish is dry.

D - Slightly odd, but overall a fantastic beer. A hybrid of sorts, but simply superb. I've got to get another one of these before they're gone. If you see one, don't hesitate. Well worth the twelve or thirteen dollars.
