Poured from bomber into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Hazy light gold, with a two-finger white fluffy with good retention. Fairly low visible carbonation.

S: Citrus fruits, flowery and perfumey notes, grassy hops, some cracker malts, and a touch of resin.

T: Citrus (orange and tangelo) hop flavor, citrus pith, perfumey and flowery (I wonder if this last one could be the power of suggestion?). Bitterness level is fairly moderated, and relatively balanced with the light cracker malts. Hop bitterness and residual cracker malt sweetness in the hang.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, alcohol presence seems more noticeable that I expected.

O: Not my favorite at all. It's interesting, but it doesn't seem hoppy enough for the style. I find the flowery aspects a little weird as well. I won't be looking for another bottle.

Hops and pine. Nothing special but drinkable
