Growler poured into a pint glass.

a-hazy deep golden color with slightly less than a finger of white head

s-sweet, malty and citrus with notes of pine

t-lots of hops with malt, pine and tropical fruits, distinct bitter grapefruit finish

m-refreshing lively light mouthfeel, not as crisp as regular pilsener reminds me of an IPA

o-really great beer, refreshing citrus hops, blends the line between pilsener and ale

Had this on tap at the Bruery this afternoon

A- Pours a nice dark golden yellow, with a fair sized head on it as well as a decent amount of lacing as you drank it.

S - It smelled of citrus and hops and also had a mild malty smell to it. Overall good smell.

T - Taste was similar to the smell. You got lots of hops on the front end but didn't last as long on the back end. Had a great citrus profile to it. Had a nice amount of bitterness that didn't linger for a long time after you drank it.

M - Mouthfeel was nice, very light but left a decent hop/citrus reside in your mouth which was good. Higher amounts of carbonation but it was not overwhelming.

D - I enjoyed this beer very much and hoping they make more of it. Not a beer I would have too many glasses of in one sitting but I did enjoy it quite a bit.
