(Served in a chalice)

A- This beer has a copper crystal clear body with a gentle carbonation of tiny bubbles. There is a white creamy head that fades to a cloud in the middle of the brew.

S- This beer has a fruity citrus hops followed by sweet malt flavor with hints of lightly toasted malt. There is a soft hint of caramel as it warms.

T- This beer has a hoppy flavor with some sweet light malt flavors that help boost the hops even more. There is a pineapple flavor to the hops with some alcohol taste that boost the hops in the finish. As this beer warms a bit the pine flavors come through in the hops nicely.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a little alcohol heat finish that increases as the beer warms.

D- This beer has a big hop flavor and a big sweetness to the malt that makes this a very nice and balanced beer. The alcohol is present but it is not offensive and compliments the other flavors in the beer very nicely.
