Serving: Poured from a 20oz bottle into a set of flight glasses. Beer was from batch 1183, bottled 3/18/2013, and drunk on 4/5/2014.

Appearance: Golden color with minimal head.

Smell: Bright and clean, some hops but not overpowering.

Taste: Slight tartness contrasted with mild hops. Very clean on the palate. The relatively high ABV is not apparent.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and lightly carbonated.

Overall: Excellent. The overall impression is smooth, refreshing, and crisp with a hint of tartness and hop spice. The flavor is distinct but not overwhelming, and the high ABV does not detract from the taste.
