On-tap at DryHop. Served in a 5oz taster glass.

A - Generous white foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and splotches of lace. Hazed golden body.

S - Extremely hop-forward, with a classic mix of American hops imparting notes of grapefruit peel, citrus flesh, pine, and dank herb. I'd guess a Amarillo & Cascade combo here; classic but well-executed. Understated crackery malt backdrop.

T - The taste is quite similar. There's a neutral, restrained cracker and bready malt backdrop supporting notes of citrus peel, pine, and earthiness. Bitterness is a bit higher than I'd prefer, but it's offset a bit by a kiss of orange flesh.

M - Dry, crisp, pleasant carbonation. Medium body, with lingering hop oils and resins in the finish. No trace of alcohol, nor would I expect any at only 5.4%.

D - A well-made, classic American Pale Ale. I'll definitely be grabbing a growler of this one, as it's right up my alley for summer cookouts and watching sports. My favorite of the first batch of brews from DryHop. Apparently this has Mosaic hops, which might explain why I enjoyed it so much.
