Served in bubble pint glass. Poured a hazy-cloudy orangeish amber color with 3/4 of an inch of white head that had good retention and lots of sticky lacing.

A nice citrusy aroma is the first thing you notice on the nose. There is a bit of a grainy malt scent in the background. On the tongue the hops are equally as prominent, the malt is even farther in the back. The citrus lingers a bit more in this beer than in the only other Zythos hopped beer I've had.

The body is pleasantly full without being heavy or sticky. Drinkability is very nice, I'd have a couple of these in a row. Overall, a very nice little beer using a new hop blend. If you see this beer around the Puget Sound, it's certainly worth your time.
