Gold with one finger white head. The nose is lightly spicy hops with lemon, pine, earth, floral, and crackery malt in the back, and a little yeasty flavor. The flavor is pretty earth-forward with a decent amount of pine and pepper. Has a strong certain dryness that melds with the moderate bitterness yet is contrasted by a light honey sweetness. Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Clear gold orange color .just under medium body with about average carbonation. Body suits the style well
Aroma is floral earthy hops, perfect amount of malt.grain,cracker, yeast and what seems like just a bit if spice
Taste is crisp, nice hop bite and very subtle malt sweetness.
I'm not usually a fan of Sam Adam's offerings but this was an impressive attempt at the style
