22 oz. bottle, 7% ABV. Crystal clear golden color, with a decent white head. Good head retention, and a great deal of sticky lace left on the sides of the glass.

Nose full of floral and citrusy hops. A hint of a loghter caramel malt in the nose as well, but overall very clean.

A clean, lighter caramel malt flavor really allows the hops to shine in this. Nice citrusy, floral hop flavor, a bit on the juicy side. Somehow manages to be fairly balanced.

Good body and carbonation. Very easy to drink. Simple. Outstanding.
