On tap at Cisco Brew Pub of Nantucket in Boston Logan Airport. This brew is a good reason to get to the airport early!
A--Hazy golden orange, with just a little head. Head is very light, not thick and frothy.
S--Big bitter nose, just how I like it. Called a blonde, but smells like an IPA.
T--Even better it drinks like an IPA. Lots of bittering and aroma hops. Lack of dryhopping keeps the bitterness from being overpowering against a light sweet malt profile.
M--Not a lot of carbonation, which is probably good as it would probably throw of the nice malt/hops balance.
O--Very quaffable, but kind of a palate wrecker. My kind of brew.

No real bottle date and had some sediment at the base so I can only assume it's over 7 months old.
A - A very hazy amber yellow so not quite blonde at all. Head exploded forth filling my whole glass with foam even with a tilt. So far not good.
S - No real hops just a raw grain smell and maybe some musk.
T - OK this bottle is older than I thought I am for sure getting a wet cardboard flavor next to some bittering hops and a very raw grainy taste. A shell of it's former self.
M - Medium bodied.
Overall I may revisit since I liked the summertime lager but I even had that one with age and it was at least drinkable. This one resulted in a 1/4 of the bottle drain pour.

12 ounce bottle, bottled 4/11/12. Poured into a Unibroue tulip. Hazy, gold body with a white head, low retention. Clear lacing. Aroma includes zesty citrus, maybe percimon and lemon. Taste has a crisp hop bitterness with a dry aftertaste. Some grapefruit flavor of hops, light in malt character. Not a bad beer, I'm sure it's just a touch past its prime.
