4.01/5  rDev -0.5%

Growler bought at Nathaniel Square Corner Store. The 3rd batch of this, I believe- Calyptra, hopped with Calpso and Citra hops.

Pours a vigorous golden yellow, with beautiful visible carbonation, and a 2 inch head. Lots of lacing.

Smelled this out of the growler and proclaimed "holy shit." This really is one of the best smelling hoppy beers I've ever had- smells like candied pineapple, orange, and some grass.

The taste is pretty good, but doesn't quite match up. Slighty catty and grassy, with some orange and pineapple. Medium bitterness lingers on the palate.

Light bodied, lots of carbonation, very drinkable and crushable.

A great hoppy lager, this one smells amazing and tastes pretty good. I poured 3 glasses from the growler, it did get better the more I drank it.
