Poured into a Celebrator pokal glass. Pours a medium orange amber. Thin fine off-white head dissipated rather quickly leaving a ring around the glass and a hint of lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and light sweet malt. Flavor is citrus hops and sweet malt. Slight nut and slight wheat elements, Finishes hoppy with nice neutral malt support. This is a hop forward ESB that approaches a IPA. Somewhat muted for an IPA, but liked this quite a bit as a ESB. Light to medium bodied. Interesting domestic variant on the style.

Pours a cloudy light brown color with little to no head poured from the bottle.

Smells of citrus bitter hops mixed with malts. Coffee notes on the finish with some dark chocolate and cocoa.

Very well-balanced ESB that's a nice easy drinking fall brew.

Smell-malty smell with a hint of citrus hops.
Taste- malty followed by a bitter finish, yeasty taste.
Mouthfeel-Good, refreshing.
Overall- A good beer for the end of summer. Drinkable with out feeling like you are drinking water. The malt and hops are balanced nicely creating a great special bitter.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a pub glass.

A: Pours a light golden clear hue with a white 1-finger head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a nice trial all the way down the glass.

S: Nice hoppy aroma with a solid malt background.

T: Hoppy flavor with hints of citrus fruits. Decent malt background.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Good ale – nothing special but very drinkable.
