Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, golden-copper coloring with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of lime, cut grass, toasted grains, and subtle caramel. Flavors are toasted forward, with an undertone of cut grass and moss. Lemon and lime highlights throughout, with a biscuit backbone. Smooth, light body, with a bitter resin and citrus aftertaste. Clean, crisp finish. Very refreshing brew.

On tap at Husk.

Appearance - Murky pond water. Slight orange tinge to the brownness. No head. Just some lacing.

Smell - Minimal hop aroma. Some pine and grass. A bit of grain.

Taste - Much better, but nothing awesome. Some grapefruit hop and pale malts. Lots of grassy hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Very bitter.

Overall - Drinkable but there are plenty of much better local options.

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong citrus hops, slight floral hops, slight yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, weak appearance, decent aroma and feel, but simple body.

A: Had this beer on-tap at Gene's Haufbrau, poured into a pint glass. Had an amber color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was a big, fluffy, creamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A surprisingly sweet, fruity aroma, with traces of hops and malt.

T: Tasted of hops (a fair amount - more than you usually find in an APA), a little malt, citrus, and possibly some pine. This beer borders on being an IPA, but that's not a bad thing. A tasty flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a sweet, lively finish.

O: This is a solid, easy to drink beer. Well done and definitely drinkable.
