Comes in darker than expected 3/4" head. The aroma wasn't really hoppy, was more of a tree that lost all of its needles or leaves.

Taste was real mellow, more like an English IPA if you ask me. Its totally balanced. Mirror Pond Pale Ale used to taste hoppier than this. Some mild citrus hop notes, but really a lot of malt to achieve balance if you're into that kind of thing.
