Enjoy by date of Nov. 30, 2011

An average pour yielded a surprising 2 and 1/2 fingers of almost white, very foamy head. Body is a nice amber color, bubbles rise to the top at a speed and volume like concert goers in a pit when the headliner takes the stage. Head takes a few minutes to shrink down.

Hops, mainly citrus characters like orange and grapefruit dominate, with a tad of pine and some sweet smelling malt to balance it out.

The flavor is ridiculously unassuming. It starts off with an odd hop character like they are old or watered down, then goes off into a breadiness. Overall a little bitter but not overly.

Smooth, but that doesn't help the flavors. Light bodied and rather dry. A little on the creamy spectrum, but not in a bad way.
