Aroma:  Some pine and citrus aroma.  Malt sweetness in the mix.

Appearance:  Golden honey color.  Clear and bright.  One finger of head and good lacing.

Flavor:  Pine and citrus flavors much like the aroma.  Bitter to start and in the finish.  Som sweetness in the middle.  Finishes dry with a nice lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel:   Light to medium body.  Good carbonation.

Overall:  This beer is well balanced between hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Hop aroma could have been more pronounced.  Very enjoyable beer.
