Very nice, easy drinking. Pours a pale yellow with a nice head. The smell was full of hops in the beginning but you could also pick up subtle notes of sour fruit and a little bit of toasted bread. The taste was highly refreshing with crisp hop notes throughout that created a wonderful beginning and finish. Light but very good.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A-hazy, golden in color. Thick suds initially, dissipating to fine bubbles over 30-60 seconds.

S-Grassy, citrus hops with a biscuit and honey malt presence.

T-True to smell with some hop spice later in the finish. Nicely balanced.

M-Nicely carbonated to be a medium-bodied, easy drinker.

O-Pleasantly surprised by this one. I've been underwhelmed by this brewer previously. I wouldn't buy a six of it while considering my other options. However, handed one or available in pint form at a bar would consistently make me happy.
