A - Pours a nice yellow/straw color, fizzy one finger head, good lacing.
S - Grass, pine, dried flowers, some lightly sweet malt.
T - Those grassy and pine hops are most prominent to the palate, some minor spices as well, a little peppery, and a nice cracker or bread malt. Some citrus as well.
M - Dry and bitter, but still a nice feel.
O - Good pale for sure, the bitterness from the dry hopping holds it back from being totally sessionable, but you could definitely have a few of these.

Pours out a clear golden body with a fluffy white head.

Floral, grassy, and lemony hops with a bready and honey sweet maltiness.

A mild bitterness sets in yielding to a floral and grassy hoppiness and bready malt.

Light bodied and clean with ample carbonation.
