Just a quick review from my notes.

I poured this into a snifter. Poured with a nice orange color and a finger of off white foam. The aroma and taste of this beer had a lemongrass note to it. It's a good beer, I just don't think I'm a huge fan of Sorachi Ace hops. There's a bit of an odd taste in there, not sure if it's the hops or not. One I loved about this beer though was it's creamy mouthfeel.
