Pours straw gold with a moderate amount of haze. Large off-white head is fairly airy but has really good retention. Plenty of sticky lacing left behind.

Big pine and lemon aroma. Light cracker malt.

Taste much like the aroma. Pine, lemon, grapefruit, and bitter orange. Just a touch of mango. A bit of malt, biscuit and cracker. Some very mild honey sweetness.

Medium body with medium carbonation. Mild bitterness but still good hop bite. Lingering citrus and a touch dry towards the end.

A - Big, white, pillowy head. Coppery golden beer. Thick, lingering ring remains after several minutes.
S - Piney, lemony and tropical.
T - Sophisticated with red fruits, caramel malts, grassy and peppery notes as well as mango and pineapple.
M - Silky with aggressive carbonation.
O - Excellent and balanced. Very drinkable. Not life altering, but very enjoyable.

I am used to drinking outstanding IPA's and this is very similar, but more dry. I can taste the artisanship, because it is not a one trick pony. It is complex in subtle ways. It gives good feel. The amount of carbonation is above average which goes well since it is so dry. The balance of everything is put together without anything overriding other feature.

I wish it could be a bit more bold in smell or flavor, but this is a top notch offering that cannot be denied. Is sum good shit.
