Pours a thin head on a straw body.
The aroma is grainy and barnyard smells.
The taste is moderate bitterness and a fruity background.
The texture is crisp.

Full disclosure, the owner of one of my locals was part of the design and brewing of this beer, and I'm drinking it in his bar. While he anxiously awaits my judgement. Wonder if I can get a free bar tab in exchange for a great review?

Served in tulip. Poured a nice light honey gold color with just under 1/4 inch of white head that had moderate retention and light-medium lacing. The front of the aroma had a spicy yeast note, the middle was mostly solid base grains, and a solid, yet subdued, hop kick was at the back.

On the tongue, the hops hit first, then the grain and yeast took over across the middle. A slightly citrusy hop finish lingered at the back. The body was smoothly solid, crisp and nicely medium, with a dry finish. Drinkability was pretty good, I look forward to having a few more. Overall, one of my more favorite Beer Camp brews. A beer you should definitely try if you see it.

4.3/5  rDev +20.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Colorful Amber in color
Spicy, hop aroma
Clarity is an entrancing combination murky and color
Lingering spiciness with hops in the background continuing to poke through
Medium body with med/high carbonation

I drank this on a warm, (Alaskan), evening.
Was expecting a more Nobler hope, but, alas, not present in taste.
Oh well, still a well designed beer, with much potential for food pairings...(which I am saving for beer dinners).
