4.28/5 rDev +0.9%
A-Cloudy yellow, nicely carbonated, one finger white head with some lacing.
S-Wheat, grass, lemon, then pleasant but mild tropical/citrus hops
T-Starts with wheat and lemon, with some grass. Very similar to a hoppy wheat. Ends with citrus and nice bitterness. Also some straw and spice.
M-Lighter, some carbonation, tad watery but nice hop resins.
O-Possibly the best session ale out there. Great balance, not too hoppy but at the same enough to satisfy hop heads.

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.
