From a bomber in trade

Pale yellow to light apricot color-- medium head

Aroma is citrus- light apricot, pineapple, and orange, with piney dank hops.

Flavors are similar and very well integrated. What really gets you right away is the creamy-factor!
Lush full mouth feel with good carbonation, almost no discernible malt (just the way I like it), and a mildly bitter finish.

Overall, well, the 5 speaks for itself. Right up their with Heady and HF-several, but Abner comes to mind.

Sample from a 22oz bottle. Thanks Clint for sharing!

The aroma wasn't as good as I anticipated. I found it a little grassy. But the flavor was fantastic!

I really enjoyed this beer.
