Pours a rich amber color and with a fairly decent size head.
The head was pretty dense and left some lacing around the glass,
lightly carbonated.

Aroma was definitly hop forward with sweet malts bringing up the rear. Hop bouquet had a floral aroma.

A pretty good tasting brew. It had a good hop pop which had a slightly floral taste balanced by a malt bill that had a sweet and or caramel taste.

Smooth in the mouth with a medium feel but a tad watery around the edges. Not overly bitter, and with a little aftertaste.

Not a bad beer had a real nice hop character balance nicely with the malts. Very drinkable.

Served on tap at the brewery last night. Review from notes. Poured into a clean, clear glass.

A Light brown translucent body that glows a light orange, brown in front of direct light. Decent head that sticks to the inside of the glass with repeated sips. 4.0

S Light, floral hops to the nose with very little else (I would imagine anything else is eclipsed by the aromatic hops). 3.5

T Hops dominate the taste as well with very little malt backdrop. This is a basic APA but the hops presence, at least to me, may suggest that it is an IPA. 3.5

M Light to moderate feel, the hops bolster the feel of the beer. 3.5

D/O Good given the manageable ABV and interesting flavors. 4.0

Notes: Surprised to find that it was not already listed here on BA since it tastes like a pretty basic APA or maybe even IPA.
