This is an American Pale Ale brewed with French Aramis Hops as part of their Hop Kitchen series. It begins in a frothy pour, a massive head that eventually settles into a cloudy amber color. The head is gummy and leaves a clotty resin along the glass rim. There is a pleasant floral nose and the palate is tickled with bits of honey, herbs and hops. Mildy sweet without being cloyingly so. The body is crisp, airy and refreshing. A decent beer that makes for a refreshing summer quaff. Would I drink more than two at a single sitting? Probably not, but it is tangy, unique and worth a taste.

Color- cloudy yellow aspen leaf. Slight head.

Aroma- very floral hoppiness with hint of fresh cut grass.

Taste- Starts with a gentle floral hoppiness with vague coriander notes, finishing dry with hints of honeysuckle. A unique IPA that reminds me of springtime.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 10/19/2013.
