Looks like a shiny new penny, with a bright copper color. Minimal,soapy, off white head that turns to a filmy cap rather quickly. Some very light and wispy lacing.
Really great nose. Floral hops are prevalent, along with a lot of citrus and fruit. Able to pick out some biscuit, honey, and caramel too. Nothing punches you in the face, it just keeps asking for another smell to see what you'll pick up next.
Extremely well balanced! Get the evidence of a sweet caramel malt base, but the floral hops immediately wash over that. Get a dry, citrus rind finish. Just want to keep drinking. Medium body with crisp carbonation.
Great beer. Highly recommended.
