LOOK. Nice honey-colored tones. Dense head on the pour but short-lived.
AROMA. Green, zesty, fresh hops. Like hops right off the vine that you crush between between the palms of your hands.
BODY. Medium-heavy in body, oily, with a firm carbonation.
TASTE. Grabs you by the tongue right off the bat with a bitter, resinous, pine sap attack. Finishes with an oily, medicinally bitter finish. Malt is there, but feels like it's just hanging out, not really bringing enough to balance the harshness of the hops.
AFTERMATH. Not my favorite. I would have liked a little more balance. It smells really, really wonderful though.
