Draft pint at Piece.

Hazy light orange body, a finger of dense offwhite foam on the surface that receded after a few minutes. MInimal spotty lace, average head retention.

Pungent citrus and two row/pilsner malt aroma, clean and light, reminds me right away of Half Acre, maybe the yeast strain or hop varietal, who knows.

Citrusy taste as well, clean and bitter. Again reminds me somewhat of Callow Knife or more recently Guest Lager from Half Acre. Supposedly this is a lager, not positive though. Light and crisp feel, packed in hop character. Orange and nectarine peel, sticky green botanicals. Overall a great collaboration, i'd get this all the time if it were available.

Others may disagree but to me this was more of a sessionable pale ale. Thin head but nice lacing on a slightly hazy dull golden body. Scattered lacing. Aroma is simple with mostly some pineapple and orange peel citrus and some club soda. Flavors are mostly hoppy with little coming from the pale malt base. Hops include citrus with mostly orange and slightly tart grapefruit but these hops mostly give a sense of club soda. Light clean body and light carbonation. Simple, too simple, with more of a subdued hop flavor. Therefore very drinkable but not memorable.
