Had this at the brewery prior to a tour.
A: Golden golden perfection here with minimal head, no staying power. Great lacing.
S: Fruity esters, hops and citrus with a little malt and yeast. The only weak point on this beer was the bouquet.
T: Grapefruit - amazing floral hop taste with a hint of lavender.
M: Nice bitterness with great carbonation.
S: Very good, very fresh beer.
Serving type: on-tap

pretty massive head on an easy pour, tons of wilding through the environs of the glass, bright golden straw color and lots of clarity, the head has good staying power and the lacing is also very good, a nice looking beer
definite musty-earthy hops, slight mango/citrus underneath, bready sweet malts hold this up, a well balanced mongrel, I personally would prefer a bit more kick from the hops in the aroma
fairly weighty in the mouth, very hefty and syrupy, more sweetness than bitter here, there is a mere twinge of bitterness that does linger in the background for some time which makes this drinkable considering the sweetness level, however it is definitely more of a malt peep show here (and I am out of quarters), this is a very smooth brew, the carbonation almost reminds me of german wheat beers for some reason, it drinks very light but yet the body is so deceptive, it also certainly packs a nice punch
a tasty brew, not the love of my life but I wouldn't kick it out of bed, well crafted but a little lax in the hop department for my personal tastes
