Not sure if this beer is still available. Reviewed from notes.

This beer was clear and reddish amber, true to the style. Head was under one finger, and didn't last very long.

Aroma was all about hops. Mostly, I got a straight out hop resin aroma, bitter but without much character. If it leaned in any one direction, it would be pine, but that's a stretch.

Aroma was mostly bitter, without a lot of malt character. Very little aftertaste.

Mouthfeel was thin, not a lot of body there at all.

Drinkability - sorry, guys, if this one has been discontinued, it's no big loss. I wouldn't go back.
