A:
Pours a clear orangeish straw color with a robust creamy white head that sticks around really well. Great retention; great lacing.

S:
Lemon zest and funky grass-tinged pine odors. Has a 'twang' to it, but is not too in-your-face.

T:
Similar to the smell. A touch of malt sweetness with an earthy hops presence underneath it all.

M:
Creamy and fresh with a medium body and clean finish.

O:
Not a bad beer by any stretch. Bitterness rises and then falls like clockwork with each sip. Head is glorious and the balance between rich creaminess and sharp bubbles is nearly perfect.
Would have again. Worth trying.
