Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.
A perfect pour yields a beautiful 1 and a half inch off white head. Sticks around forever and a day. Leaves superior lacing everywhere. Color is a brilliant ambe. With crystal clarity. Very nice looking beer here.
Smell is subtle citrusy and piney hops. Light fruity esters in the backround. Very clean hoppy smell just not a very strong aroma.
The taste is great! As this beer warms a bit, the flavor really explodes out of it. Delicious fresh hop flavor and a nice malt taste midway following up with a killer refreshingly clean bitterness. Just almost perfect tasting. Love every sip more and more.
Mouthfeel is very good. Smooth, medium bodied, slightly chewy, creamy carbonation. The carbonation is spot on. Very nice feel to this beer.
Drinkability is amazing with this. This first one went down almost too fast! Alcohol is nonexistent. Super easy to drink. Drinks like a great pale ale with a pinch more malt. Which this beer basically is. Great buy for $9.79 a sixer! Always was a favorite of mine from Troegs. Only thing better than this one from Troegs is it's bigger brother Nugget Nectar.
