Poured from a 12oz glass into a Russian River Globe on 3/21/11.
Pours a clear medium to dark golden amber with about 2 fingers of off white head that leaves low to moderate thin white lacing.
Smells of a little malt on the back but mostly a strong citrus and grass.
Taste is lots of grass on top of a malt that comes out in the end. Also a little citrus and flower in the background.
Mouthfeel is hard to pin down almost like a watery milk, kind of like having creamer running through your mouth. Its a medium mouthfeel that is quite enjoyable and subdues the bite on the front of the tongue and goes smooth all the way down.
Drinkability on this is high. I hope it stays around for the summer because I could drop these back on a hot day and at 6.4 ABV I wouldn't worry about getting toasted, at least not right away.

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.
