A-clear gold with a white head that faded fast
S-hop and citrus are about even. With the citrus smell being more of lemon and orange
T-hoppy taste with some malt sweetness at first then a hop dry pine aftertaste
M-medium body and carbonation
O-no one smell or taste was overpowering making this an outstanding complex beer that I enjoyed
