There is some citrus and pine in the aroma at first. As those soften and fade, some breadiness, toffee, and nuts become more apparent. The head is cream colored and the body a coppery amber. In the flavor, the hops are fairly light—some pine and grapefruit that tastes a little watered down. The malt is considerable but still secondary to the hops and fruity esters. Only somewhat bitter. A good earthy, grainy maltiness lingers. The body is on the light side with spritzy carbonation.

The balance of flavors seems rather off for the style. It's not very malty or bitter; and the hops and esters, while quite noticeable, are still rather light. Very drinkable and pleasant.

A very disappointing brew. The hops almost tasted oxidized, but it just had a lot of woody taste to it. Quite malty and I had a real hard time with the herbal, woody, cardboard flavor that the beer had. There was a decent sweet caramel malt backbone to the beer, and the hops are certain times have redeeming qualities though.
