Pours a very cloudy, bright golden yellow color with a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Earthy, floral hop aroma that slightly spicy with grassy pine needle character, bready yeast and subtle light fruit. Hop profile is a but one dimensional but smells pretty good. Pale malt presence with bread, biscuit and cracker. Light fruit sweetness with apple, pear and grape. Not bland but a bit one dimensional and not very interesting.

Light body with tight combination and a stronger hop presence than the nose suggests. There's a dry, crisp hop bite up front that lingers over the pale malt backbone into a dry finish. Earthy, grassy and slightly spicy with dry piny bitterness and subtle citrus zest. Some lemon peel character before finishing with biscuit malt, bread and cracker. Decent balance but it kind of falls off in the finish. Kind of watery and bland on the back end. Decent hop flavor and pretty easy to drink but I found this beer a bit bland. I guess if you just want to pound an easy to drink, aggressively hopped beer this old be appealing but I found it kind if boring.

02/05/14 From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Way out front on the grapefruit side of the hops. Citra? I don'tknow enough to opine, but I strongly suspect it's so.

As one who doesn't appreciate too much hoppiness, this is pleasant. Tame, even...until it warms up.

The 6% elevates it beyond a session quaff, but It's good for a few as long as they stay cold!
