4.2/5 rDev -0.9%
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.

3.65/5 rDev -13.9%
750 mL growler poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Hazy with a white head. Yellow/orange body. Very wispy.
Smell - Grapefruit hops, just like Life without Principle #1, but more of an earthy pine hop presence. Pale malt is also more prevalent, which is strange considering this should be less malty.
Taste - Grapefruit hops and that same touch of earthy pine. More pale malts again than its other blonde cohort. Even a touch of bitterness to this one.
Mouthfeel - Light, more body and bitterness than Life without Principle #1, which I don't get. Not quite as easy to drink, though.
Overall - Good. Very nice or a blonde ale. Light in body but still has a good hop bite to it. Impressive as always.
