look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Aroma: Started with a moderate malty biscuit aroma, with a mild citrus hop note as it progressed.

Appearance: Slightly hazy (possibly due to the temperature) gold-amber color. Thick head the color of unsalted butter that didn't last quite as long as I expected, but had great lacing--at the end of the beer there was lace the length of the glass.

Flavor: An immediate hit of bitter floral and citrus hops that lingers, with grassy undertones. Bright finish of reasonable duration. I didn't notice any real malt flavor--it seemed to be dominated by the hops flavor, perhaps too much even for a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated; tingles and fizzes on the tongue. Body light overall. Not much warmth. A bit astringent, but not inappropriately so.

Overall: A fun beer to drink that really shows off the hops.
