Four hops and four malts makes this easy to drink session beer worth while. The beer pours a nice small head with a light golden color. The aroma is grassy citrus that is appealing. The taste is an interesting mix of hops that proves unique with a slight floral/grassy after taste. All in all the beer is enjoyable and is a nice option for any party attended by rookie craft beer aficionado's.

Bottom Line: Good effort by the ST boyz.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, golden-straw coloring with a thin, filmy, clingy, bright white head. Lots of carbonation throughout the body. Aromas of resin and grassy hops, with lemon and grapefruit tart and sweet highlights. Some floral highlights on the nose as well. Flavors of tart citrus sharply hit the forward tongue, with a blast of resin and bitter on the midtongue. The palate is a bit out of balance. Light, effervesced body that comes off sharp in places. The aftertaste is very tart and slightly bitter, again out of balance. Also some earthy and barnyard notes into the aftertaste. Tangy sweetness lingers into the finish, which is light, very crisp, and clean.
