(Poured in to a tulip glass)
A- This beer has a clear orange hue body with an antique white head with slight yellow hue. The head is thick and bubbly sticking to the glass with each sip. This beer has a tiny gentle carbonation.
S- This beer has fresh full hops right off the bine aroma. There are floral green citrus hops aroma with a soft natural bubble gum note underneath.
T- This beer has a soft pale malt flavor with a hint of brie/cream quality. There is some grapefruit and floral taste with a big dandelion green bite at the finish. There is a light sweetness to the finish that grows as the beer warms.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with no alcohol.
D- This beer has an amazing aroma like when I'm harvesting hops, the flavor however does not follow through. There isn't much yeasty characteristics or malt support in the flavor. The text on the bottle is impossible to read in the color scheme but I suspect it wasn't improtant to the beer inside.
