Poured from a bottle into a schooner. Best before date on the bottle of 5/20/11 - coming up in a few weeks!
A - clear amber brew with fluffy head that leaves quite a bit of lacing on the glass.
S - grassy hops but also a hint of sweet malt and floral character; quite pleasant!
T - this beer provides an impressive balancing act with a fairly aggressive initial attack of floral hops followed by a nice bready malt and finishes with a lingering bitterness. Delightfully complex.
M - lightly carbonated but the light mouthfeel is undermined by a slight oiliness; again a bit of a surprise.
D - very drinkable; reasonably intense and complex, but also not overpowered by any particular element.
This is a really well balanced beer that hits a number of very nice notes; definitely one to stock regularly (provided it's available!)

Sampling right now on 7/3/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner flute glass.
Pours a pretty medium-amber in color with almost a 1-finger thick off-white head. A decent amount of lacing is seen that sticks to the sides of the glass, which is common for this type of brew. The aroma is of light sweet bread, with some floral hops. The taste has more going on with some citrus zest in the mix as well. Great taste but has a slightly bitter finish that stays around a bit. Does take about half the drink to get used to it. Overall great taste and even better with a less hoppy finish. I did drink the whole glass as wouldn't be the case if it was a I.P.A.
