A: Pours a crystal clear darker copper in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some garnet red highlights. The beer has a three finger thick dense frothy light beige head that slowly reduces to a quarter finger thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel malt with a light amount of nuttiness to the malt smells. There are some pretty strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit/lemon, earthy, floral, and just a touch of pine hops - there are tons of hops aromas.

T: The beer starts out with light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with some sweetness and just a hint of almond nuttiness. There are strong flavors of the different hops and they taste really fresh (like fresh cut grass) - citrus/grapefruit/lemon and pine with some notes of floral and earthy hops. Moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers for quite awhile.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slight amounts of stickiness and just a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: This is a very enjoyable beer - I have had a couple of the previous versions of this beer and it continues to be really nice. Very enjoyable and very easy to drink - I would be happy to enjoy a couple of more glasses of this one.
