Pours a brilliant golden with a frothy white head that slowly dissipates.

Cracker-like malt, grain, floral and earthy hops, a touch of dankness and citrus form the aroma.

Flavor reveals floral hops, a grainy malt backbone, and finishes fairly bitter, grassy, and dry. Light grapefruit pith adds complexity. The balance is toward bittering and grassy, earthy hops..

Body is a touch light, with moderate carbonation, and slight astringency at the finish.

More bitter than I prefer, but more complex than I anticipated. Very refreshing brew.
