Oh boy is that a nice aroma. Fresh sweet fruity mild citrus a little spice. All very nice.
Kinda' cloudy with a more of a gold amber with a fairly dense mostly white head.
Bigger than moderate feel. Almost a little chewy.
Flavor is bursting with hop flavors, but it does push the oils to the point of some excess. As warms this filters into the aroma some too (I find it off-putting). Otherwise the flavors are good. Very nicely hop forward with a very solid malt background.
As I worked through this bottle I became less enchanted by it's flavors. It's not as enjoyable as it could be. Good, but certainly not great. And even good was pushing it at the end. Great start, but it really faded down the line.
