Beautiful 14K gold color with white cap and lasting lacing.

Aroma of piney hops with a healthy dose of citrus and solid malt backing it it all up.

Flavor arrives malt first which is surprising because I was expecting a hop hit but that wasn't far behind. Probably arrived at the same time because the different flavors are so well combined. This brew retains it's complexity without a misstep all the way to the finish. A firm hop bitterness emerges in the aftertaste and is a refreshing invitation to another taste.

Medium-full texture with balancing carbonation.

Now, this was a good idea. I don't mean the fresh hop approach, rather a beautifully balanced beer that brings together all the elements of something worth driving out of your way to get.
