12oz into a pint

A - Pours a very clear light golden color. Strong white head formation, lots of lacing. Formidable head.

S - Strong resinous piney hop nose. Very dry, floral.

T - Starts off lightly citrus, almost all hops from the beginning. Malts just are hidden. Mid-stream is very bitter, more of the dry hopping. Finishes with a hefty resinous flavor.

M - Moderate creamy body, very well balanced carbonation profile. Very sticky oily texture on the tongue.

O/D - A very good wet hopped beer. Really takes a hold of the oils. ABV is managable. A little bit hefty, but good all around.
