Cloudy golden color with a small head. Aroma is pretty hoppy and herbal with a touch of spice and yeast. Flavor is hoppy, floral, some herbs and yeast. Pretty nice balance and body and good carbonation. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2010
bottle at RBWG, pours dirty blond with a thin white head. Aroma is fresh hops, pine and herbal notes. Flavor is nicely balanced, sweet citrus with grapefruit and a nice dry finish. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2010
