Had at Bluejacket. From notes.

A - Poured dark golden and bright. No visible carbonation and two fingers of white head. Spotty lace rings and no retention.

S - Lagery. Apple, perfume.

T - Lagery again. Apple character as well. Odd hops, grass, orange, some malty toffee grew on me.

M - Strong carbonation, medium body, decent bitterness.

O/D - A bit of an odd hop character but it grew on me. Could've chosen a better hop. It was OK, but I had higher expectations.
