From 08/21/12 notes. Had this on tap at Stag Head's ST event. Have had this a few times before but never reviewed it.

a - Pours a somewhat hazy orange color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, pine hops, and floral hops. Was really surprised how much citrus and hops came through, but I liked it a lot.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, light lime, pine hops, fruity malts, light bready and caramel malts. Very nice and hoppy again, but not much bitterness at all.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.

o - Overall a very nice beer. I was surprised how hoppy it was for an ESB; it was hoppier than HopSun ironically. Load of citrus to it, would love to have it again.

Pours aneffervvescent amber with a thumb of ivory colored head. Good lacing & average head retention

S: Grassyness & pineyness, a touch of grainyness & appleskins

T: Pineyness, caramel, woody hops & lemons up front. Some red apple skin as this warms along with much grassyness & lemony hops & dryness. Finishes crisp, dry & with nice woody & herbal hops signature with a kiss of orchard fruit

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, nicely balanced, purists will probably want little more malt profile

Drinks too easy, a nice if not totally true-to-style ESB
