From the bottle, it pours amber with a nice, fluffy off-white head, which lasts a bit. Lacing as the beer is enjoyed. The nose detects some floral hops. The mouth enjoys the welll balanced flavor. Yum!

This is an American Pale Ale brewed with French Aramis Hops as part of their Hop Kitchen series. It begins in a frothy pour, a massive head that eventually settles into a cloudy amber color. The head is gummy and leaves a clotty resin along the glass rim. There is a pleasant floral nose and the palate is tickled with bits of honey, herbs and hops. Mildy sweet without being cloyingly so. The body is crisp, airy and refreshing. A decent beer that makes for a refreshing summer quaff. Would I drink more than two at a single sitting? Probably not, but it is tangy, unique and worth a taste.
