Bottled 10-01-15. Poured into a tulip glass. Clear medium-dark amber in color with two inches of head that settled to a long lingering half-inch. Aroma is sweet hops with light citrus fruit intertwined.

It's dry and flavorful, with rich malt and just the right amount of bitterness. The balance in this beer is perfect. Solid mouthfeel with light carbonation on the tongue.

Wow this is a nice drinking beer. I can't believe I've left it on the shelf in years past; that will not happen again.

Poured into a snifter. Hazy dark amber color with a beautiful fluffy off-white head. The foam lasted for a while and left killer tracks and laces. Nice aromas of grass, pine, straw, orange and grapefruit. Bracingly bitter up front, but clean with layers of citrus, pine and fresh grass. A strong malt backbone. Clean finish. Really great.

Not a strong sent coming from my glass, but flavor, and color were great. Drinkable and fresh.
