A: Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a .25 finger's worth of bubbly white head. There is some super tiny sediment in the body. Little bit of bubble action. Looks refreshing. Pretty good presentation.
S: Beer really shines here -- lots of citrus. Think Sculpin, Perpetual -- maybe Headwaters. Sweetness. Some floral notes. But, a very, strong, clean aroma. Also, getting some sweet malts here. Very good.
T: Getting some citrus and sweet malts in the taste. Doesn't quite rise to the level of the aroma. Kind of a letdown. But, it taste clean, it taste refreshing. Good summertime beer. Or, good session beer. Nice bitter finish.
M: Great carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Not strong bite -- easy on the mouth. Medium feel with nice chewiness that brings out the bitterness. Good stuff.
O: Good beer -- the thing is Troegs is doing this with Perpetual IPA at a lower price beer that's available all year long. And, I'd even take a six pack of Sculpin for $17 over a four pack or Harvest for $11. Good beer -- if you haven't tried then do so, but there's similar beer out there with a better value. I'd rather see Founders do an Ocktoberfest or Pumpkin Ale for there Fall seasonal.
