From a growler I had filled a few hours ago at Peg's Cantina.

A very pale straw in color with a nice super-white head.

Fantastic hop aroma of tropical fruit with a hint of herbs and grass.

The tropical aromas carry over to the taste, which is big on flavors of pineapple, guava and more. Being under 5 percent alcohol, the malt flavors are muted, but far from invisible. I imagine the hop aromas and flavors would fade very quickly; fortunately, drinking beer from the source eliminates the danger of stale brew.

Body isn't watery.

Cycle Brewing's description is accurate: This is a session pale ale that's also a hop bomb. A nice diversion from beers with 7+ percent alcohol.

On tap at Peg’s brewpub. Cycle brewing series. Bitter, big IBU taste, from big citra? But always hard to tell the hops. Grapefruit, lemon, a little astringent. Cloudy grapefruit colour. Hoppy aroma.Very decent pale, outside of the acid. Sutably carbonated.
