A perfect pour leads to two fingers of bready off white foam that has excellent staying power. It does leave an almost solid wall of lace as it slowly fades. Body is a boney amber in tone. Nose is softer than expected with tones of vanilla malt and mineral based hops. First sip yield a mineral based hop profile that is smooth and very approachable. hops become dryer and more prickly as you continue to drink. The backside gets a sense of dandelion stem that sticks on the tongue. all of these hops are balanced by a noticeable malt backbone which may let down some hard core hop heads, but it is nice. Mouthful is mellow with some bitterness coming through and some citrus fruit feel. this brew is very nicely drinkable.
