Golden orange colored pour with a white head. The nose is heavy on the floral and citrus peel hop aromas. A lot of toast, some bread, and a moderate grass character. Some spicy phenols and a fair amount of yeast, too. Somewhat dry on the palate. Mild toast and bread sweetness, lots of floral hops, moderate bitterness, and some citrus peel. Peppery and yeasty, too. JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 21, 2012
