From growler to pint glass

A: Straw-yellow, opaque, with a marshmallow-y head that almost never fully recedes. Lacing all over the place.

S: Hop-forward with distinct grass and citrus notes. Crackery backdrop as a slight touch of honey rounds the bouquet.

T: Cracker-y, slightly earthy notes hit right up front along with citrus rind and lemon pepper, fairly pronounced for the style. Malty sweetness gently rolls in, honey-like with a subtle note of vanilla. The rind-y aspects from the hops carry throughout the sip, finishing dry and slightly bitter.

M: Light on the palate, as expected, but the brew has a pronounced oily slickness as you throw it back.

A refreshing brew hovering between a pale and an IPA. Lots of flavor for such low ABV, this is satisfying easy to quaff. Glad I brought home a growler of this because with Citra on tap there wasn't a lot of room to drink anything else.

Serving type: growler

Enjoyed from a growler with two days of age on it.

A: Pours a vibrant and hazy golden with 1/2 finger of bubbly white head.

S: Prominent malt sweetness, fresh squeezed citrus juice and a hint of fresh hop dankness. Really juicy aroma. Normally I get something a little spicy from mosaic hops, but I didn't get that this time... just tons of juice. Really great aroma.

T/M: Crackery pale ale malt with hints of wheat leads into a mid-sip bitter fruit juice. Cracker flavors swell into the finish, which is lightly bitter and slightly drying. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with moderate carbonation.

O: Smells a bit better than it tastes. The malts are much more prominent in the flavor than in the aroma. A really nice, very drinkable beer.

Serving type: growler

On tap for The Full Pint 6th Anniversary Celebration held at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, CA.

Billed as being brewed with all Mosaic hops.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some berry aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and berry flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but I think the hops come through much better in the aroma.

Serving type: on-tap
