look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner.

A: Medium-dark golden hue. Lots of effervescence rising throughout and clinging persistently to the sides of the glass. Pours about a 3 finger, frothy, white head. Craters slowly and unevenly, leaving plenty of dry sticky residue as it does. Lots of thick lacing.

S: Hay toned malt. Sourdough bread, with a little pine hop.

T: Malty and biting hoppiness. A little twangy. Hard to describe....

M: Light and bitter.

D: Bitter but not enough to slow your pace.

Atmosphere is really nice. Nice hue, plenty of carbonation, great head, lots of persistent lacing. Nose is grainy and piney. Malt flavor with a biting hop, offset with something of an out-of-place twang. Overall, this is an interesting, and good quaff.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams glass.

Appearance: Gold amber in color with a thick white head. Medium lacing on the glass.

Smell: Smell of hops and citrus dominate, smells more like an IPA than a lager style beer.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth and medium bodied. Taste is bitter hops more like a lager taste.

Overall. Interesting brew, it was good for sure.
