A- Pours a hazy copper-amber hue with a one finger head foamy head. The head is a beautiful caramel color. Good lacing and decent retention.

S- Mostly citrus and pine fragrances from the hops. Slight malt sweetness undertones.

T- Good doses of cascade hops. Malt backbone balances nicely with the bitterness. Finishes clean with a few lingering hints of the hops bitterness.

M- Slightly thin, but very drinkable. Weight is adequate to support the flavor profile.

Overall, this is a terrifically balanced brew that could be easily sessioned.
