Pours a clear orange/amber into a snifter with a small off-white head which quickly dissipates into a ring of larger bubbles around the edge. Only a tad bit of lacing around the glass as it drains.
Nose is piney and grassy hops with a little bit of citrus/orange peel and bubble gum.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Smooth and slick with hop oil and slightly dry in the finish.
Taste is bitter and hoppy, pine, some citrus and a bit of astringency in the back. A bit of sugar sweetness in the front keeps the hops in check.
Highly drinkable for 9% ABV. Nicely balanced and alcohol well hidden.
Overall this is a fairly mellow and nice example of the style. Not too bitter and a nice ratio of pine and citrus in the hops. Good carbonation keeps this plenty refreshing and enjoyable to drink.
