12 oz. bottle in a pilsner glass.

A - Slightly cloudy golden yellow with a little white head.

S - Very little sweet hoppy smell.

T - A little sweet with good hop flavor. The rest of the flavor is very complex. There's a lot going on but I can't make out the individual flavors.

M - Light bodied with good carbonation.

D - Good beer with a complex flavor that keeps you drinking and wondering what is that taste, in a good way.

12oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A - Medium sized white cap of tight head. Light golden in color with good clarity. Good lacing on the glass.

S - I'm finding a little bit of noble hops but this beer seems to be slightly light struck. There are some husky grain smells also.

T - Very quick and light malt to a good grassy hop flavor mid palate. I get some of that skunkiness mixing it up with the hops throughout. Crisp feel to its finish with a grassy hop that lingers for a while.

M - Nice carbonation to the beer helping accentuate the hop flavors. Light body, very dry.

O - Great appearance. I'm disappointed in the condition of the beer although it wasn't completely ruined. Flavor wise the green bottle character somewhat mimicked, to an extent, the hops.
