A: Golden straw color with very little head fading quickly leaving little-to-no lacing.

S: Beautiful hops dominate the aroma. Mostly bitter with pleasant notes of citrus. The malt aroma is hard to detect under the hops, but what is there smells sweet and brown-sugary.

T: Delicious. The hops and malt are balanced very nicely and both follow the nose, except the malt is more pronounced in the flavor than it was in the aroma. There is a sourness to the taste. Not a Brett sour however.

M: Thick. A little more carbonation would be nice to cut the sweetness of the malts. My lips are left sticky.

O: Great beer. It smells great and tastes better. I love the balance between the bitter citrus hops and bready sweet malts. I would have liked more carbonation.
