bhensonb (11272) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Aroma of citrus hop and malt. Golden amber color with a bit of head. Flavor starts with a sweet mixed hop impression. Mostly citrus, but something else, not pine. Very interesting. Nicely bitter. Some malt tries for balance, but it gets lost.
