Poured into a tulip

Appearance: dark golden with a light hue of copper and beautifully bright. Head is a minimal, very light tan with only a thin lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malt and hops, but the hop aroma is much less than what is standard for the style. There is more malt than hops in the aroma.

Flavor: quite tasty. Very pleasant hoppiness without being overpowering. Some light citrus and light pine, but really no distinctive flavors.

Mouthfeel: medium. Spot on. I could easily put back two bombers without getting full. This in no way implies that this beer is thin; it is not.

Overall: Much better than I recall. This beer is light and well balanced. Job well done. You could easily drink several without getting weighed down. This is much less sweet than Maharaja. I should compare the two side by side.
