On tap at the Reservoir. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden amber. Small white head. Wispy surface with nice lacing.

Smell - Herbal and grassy. Some grapefruit. Pungent and sweet. A little grainy. Smells like wheat.

Taste - Grapefruit hops. Sweet. Some caramel. Grainy wheat. Sweetness builds along with bitterness. Grassy in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation. A little sweet for me.

Overall - The more I drink it, the less I like it. I guess it's good for a Pilsner, but that doesn't say a whole lot.

Serving type: on-tap

@ Ridgewood

Clean gold covered with a sticky pure-white head. Stinky, leafy citrus and fresh hop pellets in the nose. Grass and pineapple becoming more pungent and spicy towards the bottom of the glass. Fresh peppery citrus, spicy bitter pine, peach, and grapefruit hop flavors. A bit of trailing cracker-like malts, but the focus is squarely on the hop resins. Drying, fairly crisp, and extremely drinkable for a style that can sometimes be a little tedious.

Serving type: on-tap
