This was served with a decent, off-white/light-tan head above a slightly hazy, deep-amber colored liquid. It had a good, hoppy nose. The mouthfeel was medium with a nice hoppy bitterness on the tongue. The finish was dry and bitter with a slick, oily feeling left behind on my tongue. The ABV was well-hidden in this beer, which caused me to have to keep reminding myself to pace myself.

It was poured with about a one finger head that disappeared rather quickly but left some good lacing on the glass. The color was a deep amber with no apparent cloudiness. The smell was of a nice floral, and maltiness but which was somewhat light. The scent did improve as it warmed. The taste was a good maltiness with a citrus hop balance, however the hoppiness was low for the style, imho. There was a slight citrus, earthy hop bite that lingered on the tongue. Maybe a little too sweet. Had a nice medium to medium/full body which was pleasing to the tongue. Good carbonation with a smooth finish. The smooth finish and well hidden ABV makes for a very drinkable beer, but don't forget about the ABV. Could have a few in an evening. I would have it again if the opportunity arose.
