Served on tap into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a very clear and light pale yellow color with lots of streaming carbonation, white frothy head left glass-coating lace.

S- Bug burst of citrusy hops and lemon-grass notes. It smells like Amarillo hops.

T- Big bright citrusy and grapefruit hops balanced with a really nice cracker malt backbone. Some pungent hop character on the finish, but it does not linger.

M- Super refreshing, dry, medium body, and smooth.

O- This is really nice hopped-up summer beer that is very refreshing.
