A - Pours a clear golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a bit weak. It is a mix of bready malts and some grassy hops. Just a bit of citrus hops in the background.
T - Starts off with the bready malts from the nose with a touch of yeast. There is also a bit of grassy/earthy hops in the background. Through the middle, some yeast flavor comes through with a touch of sweeter caramel malts. The finish is back to the bready malts with some yeast character that lingers.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and fairly crisp and refreshing, if not a bit empty.
D - Very drinkable. Could have used a bit more kick somewhere as the flavor just feels a tiny bit empty.
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
