A-Pours a cloudy straw color. Well poured; about a half inch of creamy, white fluff. Long ribbons of lace.
S-Relatively subtle. The hops deliver in their complexity. Fruity hop aromas that remind me of apricots and unripened citrus. Grains and a crackery aroma.
T-More distinct. I get a bunch of graininess but the hops don't let up either. Crisp, dried grain along with slightly sweet wafer. Signature Jack's Abby yeast (the fulcrum of their consistency). And, of course, the hops. Citra and Calypso offer a unique tandem of flavor. Dried apricots, grass, non-grapefruit citrus flavor (more like tangerine). A little bit of earthy hops.
M-Ligt, crisp, refreshing, mild bitterness. No booze. Complemented my meal very well.,this,would complement any meal, I bet.
O-While not one of their standouts, this is another tasty treat from the Le Abby de Framingham.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
