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.

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.
