Hop flavors/aromas more prominent when young, but mellows a bit with aging. VERY tasty with good malt character and flavors. A winning combination and is on the 'brew again' list. Could be my house pale ale. At ~6.5% ABV, it's a good drinking beverage that refreshes and calms at the same time. Joy in a glass.
