3.3/5  rDev -9.1%

A- rich, creamy pure white head atop a clear, deep straw colored liquid. Excellent head retention, and the lacing is equally impressive. There a lots of very fine, slow rising bubbles.

S- lightly toasted barley, herbal hops. It's delicate and balanced.

T- water crackers, grassy, really light bitterness. This could pass as a a pale ale, and a light one at that.

M- light, velvety carbonation. It's still somewhat crisp. Watery finish.

O- it's a "session IPA". It is really light, but very drinkable.

12 ounce bottle -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint Glass

A - medium gold, very clear with a foamy two inch head, great retention and great lacing. A constant stream of tiny bubbles can be observed rising from the bottom. Gotta love glasses with the nucleation points etched into them.

S - Nice smell that has an abundance of citrus, floral, fresh cut grass, and bready notes. A pleasure to the olfactory!!

T - A light but refreshing lemon citrus flavor greets the palate at first observation. The taste moves seamlessly into a bitter herbal hop finish. However this would not be considered to be a hop bomb.

M - medium thickness with average carbonation.

O - This is a nice session ale. It drinks easily and is a refreshing offering.
