Notes/Commercial Description:
This brew uses several varieties and multiple hop additions to the kettle as well as a large "hop back" to give the bitterness and aroma a start. Plenty of dry hops finish it off and give a big hop bouquet.

Thanks to pastradul for the trade

Poured into my Spiegelau tulip glass.

A- very light golden amber color, half a fingers worth of small bubble filled white head, some splotchy lace

S - was a good foot away from it and get already pick up the "Dank" citrus flavors - lemon, pineapple, orange also some fresh cut grass

T - good caramel/pilsner malt base flavor starts that lends itself mid palette to dry, bitter citric flavors, slight astringency in the back of the palette like sucking on a lemonhead hop

M - medium bodied, good and bubbly, not syrupy or thick

D - hops dont completely take over the show, but are in the forefront where they should be for the style, beer does not try to do too much, hard to put down as each drink leaves you wanting another, going to be going after more of their hop forward brews
