22 picked up tonight at Bier Thirty while grabbing a couple other beers for a trade that needs to go out. Poured into my slim tulip and enjoyed while finishing up some writing about the Pres Debate. 2 finger off white head.... great retention and lacing... the brew is hazed orange.

Nose shows a fairly fruity hoppiness... sorta tropical balanced by citrus zestiness... smells pretty malty... the malt profile seems to mute the hoppiness a bit...

Flavor is pretty good, though again the malt sorta trump the hops too much... engaging bitterness helps balance the malts... hops are fruity and even a bit floral but more hop flavor is needed.

Body is a touch high too for my liking, but it is not a deal breaker... carbonation is spot-on. Not boozy at all.

Pretty good.... I would like to see more hop flavor and aroma... less of a pronounced malt profile would help, dry it out some. I would buy this one again.
