Just got a book that really has convinced me it's time to move on from my pint glasses and invest in the proper glassware. Unfortunately, this one was enjoyed from my standard Shaker pint. Still, I managed to get a half finger head on it. Body was clear amber. Fit the style well.

Aroma started with sharp citrusy hops. It also smelled sweet and syrupy. It was hard to pick out any malt. Still, I am a hophead, so this didn't bother me in the slightest.

Taste began with sharp bittering hops and hop resins. This faded and flowed into a clean caramel malt flavor, which was quite refreshing. There was a light bitter aftertaste, much less so than the initial taste led me to expect. To me, this seemed the best of both worlds.

Mouthfeel was pretty good. A little thick and syrupy, but not overly so.

Drinkability was awesome. As mentioned above, very refreshing. It didn't hit too hard, and when I was done I wished I had more. If not for the ABV, this would be a great session beer. I have to look for places that have it on tap.
