750ml growler courtesy Ruth..Thanks!

Pours hazy straw with a thin head of white. Retention is short-lived with a few wisps on the surface for the duration and some errant dots of lacing.

Aromatics lead off with tropical hops and pine dew. Pears with hints of cut grass and forest floor.

Light bodied with a crispish mouthfeel. A bit thinnish.

Piney, fruity hops start the palate with minimal bitterness and zero malt. Shades of honey-drizzled biscuits with spruce-dewed peaches and pears follow through.

Finishes dry with lingering hops and what seems to be zero alcohol.

Very tasty session ale, but I prefer the hopping in Nelson more.
