Amber in color with a fingernail thick layer of white head on top. Brussels lacing. Aroma of citrus hops is present and yet restrained. As I take a sip the citrus hop flavor assaults my tongue. There's saltine cracker and dry bitterness in the flavor as a result of the hop/malt balance. The mouth is moderately carbonated and crisp.
