Reviewed from notes.

Dark amber with an off white head, with decent retention and lacing. Smells and tastes like caramel, with floral and citrus hops. More bitter than sweet. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Has a somewhat bitter aftertaste. A decent beer.

I got this one out to drink before starting my first crawfish boil of the season. It is hot and humid and I am ready for, well many, beers.

This one pours a very nice tan to amber color that has a very thick tan colored head that settles slowly with good lacing on the glass.

The nose is malt with a subtle woodsy and pine like undertones. It has a pleasant and enjoyable nose.

The taste is brisk hops with a pine like hoppiness to match the nose. The bitterness is strong and well balanced to the hops. The finish is a steadily increasing bitterness that fades slowly.

Overall, this is a very drinkable beer. I liked it and would buy it again, but it wouldn't make the top of my list.
