500ml bottle: This one pours a clear, golden color. There was a bit of a white head that didn’t linger long but did leave some lacing. The nose is nice. Some floral, citrus and musky notes. The taste is good. A touch of bitterness, but not overdone. Some citrus, malts are fairly well hidden with no sweetness, a bit of a dry finish. Crisp. A very nice APA.

Poured from 500 mL bottle into a pint glass with moderate hand. Label yields a born on date of 12/03/13. Freshie fresh! Doin' what's right according to the bottle's instructions.

A: Slightly hazy, pale golden body with solid 3 fingers of white, frothy head. Impressive retention. Lots of lacing.

S: Fresh, balanced hop with notes of pine, citrus, grapefruit. Light pilsner malt.

T: Crisp, and hop-forward with fruit notes, light pine. Dry finish with a lingering bitterness. Lemony/orangey citrus, grapefruit and pine are again featured. Some pepper notes. A bit floral. No alcohol. Very light malt presence. Clean.

M: Moderate carbonation with nice fullness despite a light body. Touch of creaminess.

O: Dry, hoppy, exceptionally smooth pale with very fresh hop flavors that feature predominantly. Great brew. Not the most complex, but damn if it doesn't go down like butta. Quality is the word here. Pricey, but you get what you pay for sometimes.
