12ounce bottle then into my beer glass

A- deep yellow with a thin, creamy head that is leaving nice lace.

S- crackers with a nice floral note. Maybe a soft hint of citrus also

T- well balanced. A little bready at first quickly followed by light floral hop. Finishes kind of dry with an enjoyable hop aftertaste.

M- kind of creamy with seemingly low carbonation?

O- It is what it is: a nice, simple, easy drinking EPA. When you drink this you won't be tempted to dissect it; you will say "mmm" and want to drink more. This is a nice summer ale. Highly recommended for sitting on the porch, fishing, or just hanging out.
