Poured from 750 ml bottle into Founder's Bolt Cutter glass.

A: Poured pale golden almost lemon color with nice three finger fluffy white head with large bubbles. Nice lacing.

S: Lots of lemon, oranges and citrus mixed with a grassy note that is really enjoyable.

T: More citrus flavors mixed with nice hops and spice. Reminds me of some nice champagnes in some respects.

M: Dry and nicely carbonated. Refreshing to drink.

O: I like this one quite a bit. I just wish they carried it locally. Nearest place to get it retail is about an hour and a half from the house.
