Wow! My first add of a beer! Lucky Girl!

Appearance> Dark golden, hazy, lively, BIG HEAD, lots of lacing.
I was delighted
Smell> Hops and honey; good signs
Taste> Sweet apple crispness, followed by a burst of hop heaven
(Cascade? similar bitterness to SierraNev) that lingers just
long enough before a sweet smooth finish.
Mouthfeel> Medium-body, smooth, refreshing
Drinkability> oh so very. I ended up purchasing a cube (their option instead of a growler) to take with me.
