Poured from 2 liter growler into an imperial pint glass. Color is deep amber and has a 2 finger head that leaves nice lacing. Has a very nice tropical, citric, and floral aroma from the hops and the malts contribute some sweetness. Delicious hops (tropical/citric/floral) in the taste that perfectly balance the malts, leaving more bitterness than the 24 IBUs suggest. The malts are almost as flavorful as the hops, but the hops emerge victorious. It is somewhat thick and coats the mouth well. Tastes very good - would probably match well with spicy foods. Another quality beer from my local brewpub.

Poured from my growler into a Michelob fat tulip/pilsner design glass.

Ample 3-finger head is thick and off-white, moderate stability and retention, great lacing. The color is not very deep, its more of a golden bronze than an amber color.

Deep floral nose is nice and strong with a slight grassy note. No malt coming through, no counters balance.

Taste is nice, decent balance, distinct with a slight sweet bready malt taste going to an overall bitter and dry finish. Not real heavy in the malt department, does not seem the focus. Maltiness comes out more with temperature, revealing a lightly toasted bread taste.

Fitting mouthfeel; low viscosity and ample carbonation, compliment the taste.

Great session beer if you like hops.
