Poured from bottle to pint glass

A-Pours a vibrant gold/dark yellow with a white head that doesn't lace as much as I would like it to. The look of this beer just makes me want to drink it.

S-Lots of citrus/fruity aromas hit you first. A smooth and complex malty smell is a little lighter. Not to sure of all the grains in this, but the smell makes me want to take a drink.

T/M-Excellent! A mix of pale malt and citrus fruit flavors tickles my tongue. As the beer finishes, the hops take over with a nice pine flavor that gives the beer a great pale finish. The body is just perfect and the carbonation is spot on.

This is one of the better beers I have ever had. The only complaint I have, and this is being picky, is the head doesn't lace as much as I would like it. This beer looks, smells, and tastes good. Pick it up, you won't be disappointed.
