Poured into a pint glass
A: Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a two finger width head that settles a bit quick, a bit of lacing left behind.
S: Piny and a bit hoppy with hints of spice. Detecting a bit of malt in there as well, and hints of citrus.
T: Malt up front with some hops and hints of citrus with an ever so slight bitterness.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
D: Nice drinkability. Pretty easy to enjoy a few of these on a hot day - would be pretty ideal.
Serving type: bottle

(on tap at Pistola's - served in a shaker pint)
A: fairly cloudy with dry hop residue... sun-baked golden grass color... lazy stand of head, falls flat... looks messy, raw, amateur
S: a bit flat - old dry malt, farmyard grass... dried flowers, dried citrus peel hop aromas peeking through
T: grassy-sepal, green tea-like hop bitterness - unmistakable dry hop source... hop flavors are pretty straight-up wildflower with a tinge of citrus... they weren't lying, the malt is full, bread loafy, and bold - the bitterness cuts through over it, but still some sloppy balance is maintained
M: nearly medium-bodied, added roundness from hop polyphenols, etc... tannic bitterness shocks the tongue a bit... protein-grainy flow
O: kinda like a pale ale done like a rustic, homespun saison - reminds me of Hof Ten Dormaal's Blond that I had recently, just with slightly different yeast character and more biting hop bitterness
Serving type: on-tap
