A-Pours an illuminated, hazy yellow hue. Small head, sample cup doesn't take kindly to lacing.

S-Not your normal Summer seasonal. This one has a vibrant, fruity/sweet nose of tropical hops and cracker malt. Hop forward but not intense.

T-More fruity hops that give off hints of pineapple and soft citrus. Sweet, doughiness rounded out by a hopped spice. The Galaxy, Simcoe, Citra trio really makes for some loopy flavors!

M-Sessionable. One small sample was not enough. Light bodied, tingly and relaxed bitterness.

O/D-A cool intro to Back East. I would love to pick up some cans of this for a beach trip or other Summer shenanigans.
