My love affair with this brewery continues with this light hazy yellow offering, poured into a standard pint glass and topped with a copious amount of creamy white head that may have left some of the most intricate lacing I've seen on a beer glass, extending all the way from top to bottom. Aroma is sublime, very hop-forward with a hint of cracker-like malt, lemon, lime, grapefruit, and a little tropical guava perhaps along with a rock candy-like sweet undercurrent. Was hoping the taste would match this assertive aroma, but alas this is one of those times where the aroma drives much of the pleasurable experience that is drinking this beer. Not that the taste is poor, far from it. Quite dry and crisp, though, with little of the caramel malt flavor prominent in this brewery's IPAs, this being replaced by dry crackers, sourdough crust, and a whiff of grainy tannins. Hop flavor translates (to me) as unsweetened lemon-lime soda, an effect heightened by the intense carbonation. Still struck by how dry this is, with some minerals apparent in the green, near-leafy finish. Lovely aroma and crisp mouthfeel would bring me back.
