3.2/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a slightly hazy lemony golden with a dense white head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of lacing.

Floral, slightly dank hops, lemony citrus, and musty, earthy notes form the initial aroma. There's a grainy character at the base, with faint pilsner crackery malt making an appearance.

Flavor is very citrus-forward, and bitter from the start, though a soapy kind of bitter that's fairly offputting. It lingers throughout. Lemon, grapefruit, and muted tangerine give the impression of sweet tarts, and underlie a soft bed grainy malt. The balance is bitter.

Body is moderate to a touch light, slightly slick, with moderate carbonation, substantial astringent harshness, and modest alcohol warmth.

Decent hop flavoring profile, with little malt presence, keeping it might. The bitterness is overwhelming and unpleasant. It lingers indefinitely.

Pours a cloudy golden, with substantial head. Thick and beautiful lace.

Nose is pleasantly grainy with plenty of citrus notes. I get orange peel and spice as well.

Taste is also quite good -- very nice citrus hops presence, yet with a lighter, near-lager body. Perfectly light but flavorful session ale, and one I'd gladly enjoy again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A-Semi-cloudy, some carbonation, two finger head.

S-Good deal of hops, lemon and citrus, some malt.

T-Balance is off, wheat/straw is competing with citrus/lemon flavors. Mild bitterness.

M-Light to medium bodied, dry crisp finish.

O-Not a great beer, but for a summer session ale, rather drinkable. Not the best summer sessional but worth a taste, which is more than can be said about most Upland beers.
