Pours a light-ish golden yellow. Maybe an inch of dense, surprisingly long lasting tight white foam.
Smells like ... strangely muted, actually. I gave this beer three different shots (two different growlers and two different serving formats). Some light pine ... where are the tropical notes? Barely any citrus. Maybe a hint of floral-ness. The regular Humulus Lager is a hop bonanza, this, not so much.
Taste is similarly strangely flat/absent of hop flavor. Kind of more like a mild ESB mixed with a pale ale in terms of a light piney toastiness and citrus aftertaste. Certainly easy to drink, not palate wearying in the slightest, but I guess I was expected this to be more hop forward.
Bruery's experimentation is awesome. Every year they come up with 2-3 awesome new offering. On the other hand, I really wish that they'd offer Humulus Lager or their DIPA (Old Richland) on a year-round/regular basis.

Draft service into a becker glass at Bruery Provisions in Orange, CA.
A: Slightly hazy, light amber color with one finger of persistent off-white foam head. Heavy, nearly-continuous sheets of lacing remain on the glass.
S: Floral and piney hops keep pace with each other, and also strike a balance with husky but dry crystal malt.
T: Begins almost dry, with intense rose flower and mild orange citrus hop aromatics. Acidity is restrained, appropriate, into the drying middle where hop flavors become more green herbaceous and a thread of toasted malt emerges. The finish is easy, mildly bitter with rustic malt that peaks late.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, wet and balanced on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: A world-class pale ale that possesses a remarkable and unusual hops profile that is worth remembering (and hopefully reproducing.) Not exactly West Coast, but obsessively dry-hopped and focused on appealing aromatic hop qualities. It is difficult to recollect a more floral ale, whose other qualities bear such marks of fine craftsmanship.
Serving type: on-tap
