On tap at the brewery, quick review from written notes.

Pale bright gold and very clear and sharp like a helles lager. Compact head of white foam, drippy arcs of sudsy lacing stick to the glass. Thin veil on the surface.

Softly sweet aroma of juicy citrus.

Bittersweet & hoppy, light flavor of juicyfruit gum and grapefruit pith. Light bodied and subtle, traces of toasted kernels, with a dry, lingering bitter aftertaste. Supple feel and very drinkable. A nice local wet hop IPA that i'll definitely drink again when the opportunity arises.

A-Clear yellow orange, one finger head that leaves some lacing.

S-Good deal of bread/wheat to start and some citrus hops.

T-Once again starts with bread and wheat and toast. Ends with citrus and slight bitterness. But not enough to fully balance the beer out.

M-Medium to light in body with nice carbonation and a crisp dry finish.
