Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a nonic.
A: Cloudy, dark golden hue; with a giant, frothy bone colored head. Craters slowly and unevenly, leaving behind hefty amounts of dry residue. Substantial beer ring lacing. Head explodes with each new pour.
S: Hops with a bit of oatmeal, and a prominent floral component of lavender. Maybe a little basil in there also.
T: Nice, hoppy goodness, with a slight pungency from the oat. A light woody tone, with a slightly sweet hint of butterscotch.
M: Light and crisp. Biting hops in the front, with a slightly pungent aftertaste that lingers through the finish.
D: Goes down easy with a pleasing sweet hoppy goodness. Consume at will.
Atmosphere is a really good. Cloudy body, with a thick frothy head, and plenty of lacing. Nose is hops with a pungency from the oatmeal; with a floral character and some sweet and spice components. Flavor is crisp, hoppy, and pungent, with a woody tone and some sweet components for balance. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

On tap at the Whip In.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of orange citrus with some biscuit malt notes. The flavor is very similar. The grass and orange notes go very well with the biscuit and light toffee notes. There is a lot amount of bitterness, as well as some creamy and oat-like notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
