16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Slightly foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, pine, wheat, bread, grass, and floral hops. Very nice and pleasant aromas with good strength, balance, and hop complexity. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, pineapple, wheat, bready grain, light pine, citrus rind, floral, grass, and herbal earthiness. Light citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pineapple, wheat, bready grain, light pine, citrus rind, floral, grass, and herbal on the finish for a short bit. Very nice flavor balance with a good amount of hop flavors; zero cloying flavors present on the finish as expected. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol warming is pretty much invisible, with hardly anything present on the finish as expected. Overall this is a damn nice blonde ale! Very nice hoppy flavor with good malt balance; and extremely easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
