I had this at the Hulmeville Inn. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice slightly darker than yellow with a fizzy white heading that sticks around for a while.
Smell is very earthy with a nice subtle grassy aroma with a touch of spice.
Taste has gotten me by surprise a very smooth,crisp cracker like maltiness in the beginning which is quickly taken over by the grassy,piney like hoppiness.
Mouth is crisp,clean and goes down extremely smooth. Leaves a heavy linger in the mouth of those unmistakable green hops.
Very light and very tasty. This one caught me by surprise and I highly recommend if you find it.
Serving type: on-tap

3.71/5 rDev -0.5%

Light amber in color, topped with two fingers of foam. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is hop forward, and there are undoubted American hops at work (checking the hop bill... Yep: Citra and Simcoe, plus Tettnang). Primarily citric character of grapefruit rind, a little bit of tangerine. Bready malt aroma.
The flavor profile is reminiscent of another Victory brew: Headwaters Pale Ale. Citric and grassy hop flavors upfront followed by crisp, light malt. APA-like bitterness levels. Light body with brisk but soft carbonation.
Hopheads should give this a look. Much more hop-forward than the usual summer seasonal blonde ale, which tend to be somewhat bland.
