Amber yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a thick, dense white foam with excellent staying power that left sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Citrus hop and floral aromas up front with rye malt notes in tow. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a resinous feel. Flavors are similar to aromas with citrus and floral hops up front followed by spicy rye malt through the middle and a clean, light crisp finish. Refreshing and easy to drink
Serving type: on-tap

Big review dump from camping the last week. This was consumed in Sioux Falls, SD at our campground. Full notes taken on phone.
A- Hazy golden-apricot body poured from a 12oz to a goblet. A white head rises up to about one finger with decent retention and a frothy foamy texture. Thin islands and the small ring leaves spotty lace
S- Pretty much half and half balance of hops and malts for me. Maybe a bit to the hoppy side if I had to chose. Hops bring resin citrus grapefruit and floral. Caramel, rye and pale grains.
T- A small shift happens here with an increase in floral and specifically citrus oily feel, lemon oil almost with flowery herbal and spicy notes. Base of medium caramelized grains, spicy rye, slight sweets, rye crusty bread and some apple fruit esters.
MF- Light bodied with a nice texture from the rye. Silky and creamy with high end carbonation that helps drive the medium bitterness.
Nice balance of citrus floral hop strength and rye crusty cracked grain.
