A: Foamy head; bubbly; hazy; amber, golden color
S: Floral, piney
M: Good carbonation; medium body; dry finish
T: Starts with a good hit of hops, sweeter in the middle, but the one bottle I've drank had a really unpleasant finish that was very bitter and aspiriny (medicinal).

Rather than do the typical:
A = Appearance
S = Smell
T = Taste
M = Mouth-feel
O = Overall

I'm just going to say this - - - after a long week at work, and when I'm too tired to try something new - - this is my "go to" beer! Drink it out of the 12 oz. bottle, enjoy the perfect hop "pow" and great carbonation and let the flavors linger. Great beer, deserves the world-class rating. Grab a case and enjoy!
