Bottle, december 28th 2012. Amber hazy body, nice tidy medium white head crowning it. Aroma is all about the hop, grassy, with citrus, peach and pine. Refreshing. Taste follows the same pattern, combined with a caramel taste and a slightly sweet offtaste. Bitterness good as expected from the warrior, finish is fruity, again peach,some pine, and lots of caramel.
