3.85/5  rDev +3.5%

Picked up a single in early June from Total Wine for $1.99. Enjoy By 9-9-2014.

Beer poured golden with an OK white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose has hints of citrus on top of the malt bill.

Taste was surprisingly hop forward. Floral and citrus are meld in nicely with the malt bill but linger in the after taste. Well done.

Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated and refreshing.

Overall this is a really nice summer beer. Light and refreshing but a lot of flavor. Nicely done.
