look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

355ml Bottle from Vino Wines, Edinburgh:
Bright orange with a large, three centimetre tall head that is a creamy white colour and looks quite foamy, holding pretty well.

Hoppy and with some good, sweet malts and a sort of biscuit malt aroma. There is a few citrus and floral notes coming through as well and this is backed up by some lighter caramel and some sweet but light malts.

Sweet caramel malts and the floral hops that strike you first. There is some pine hops too but these are more subdued and I could detect some citrus, more caramel and a mild, fruit flavour with some sugar towards the end along with some bitterness.

Medium bodied although on the lighter side of medium and with a nice smooth, bitter feel to the beer that is rounded off with a light citrus tang. The carbonation is moderate and it goes down great, really hitting the spot and it was pretty refreshing too.

Wonderfully balanced with malts and hops both featuring, a nice smooth and refreshing feel to it and a great smell that is backed up by the taste. One of the best I've had from an American brewery I think, particularly from the relatively lower abv. ones.

P- Thanks to some friends for this beer

A- gold copper color that is quite clear with visions of alcohol in it. half finger head that leaves a water line mark on my pint.

S- grassy hops with hints of citrus. Some toasted malts as well.

F- grassy citrus hop flavor with back end toasted malts. a nice complement but the grassy tone tends to dominate. I would like the citrus to dominate the grassiness.

M- smooth and light bodied. hoppy taste in the mouth.

O- not a bad beer but like I said the grassy dominance tends to take it down a notch for me.
