look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Tall 12oz brown glass bottle, twist-off cap.
Label shows the dollar pyramid on a red and yellow background.
Transparent straw colored body. Off-white multibubbled head with decent retention and lace.
Hoppy scent. Vegetable, wet grassy mulch. White buttered bread and pepper.
Sweet juicy hopcone flavor, very good. Some bread notes and sharp pine. Aftertaste is long lived and full of citrus pine hops.
Medium body, slick feel and some residual sugars.
Good drinkability.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: 1/2 a finger of head cover a amber beer. The head has nice tight bubbles. Fantastic lacing. Completely coats the glass.

S: Very slight sweet smell. Some floral scent. The nose is weak overall.

T: Sweet balances out the bitter. The bitter is totally subdued. There is a slight hint of a skunked taste. I can't decode the born on date. It is possible that the hops have faded - but I like the swet and not bitter profile.

M: Nice level of carbonation. Nice body.

O: I like this - it is a departure from the hop bombs that everyone is producing. There is a nice balance that allows the malts to showcase teh sweetness.
