A- Golden yellow straw color in the glass. Super sticky, foamy head. Great lacing. Constant streaming bubbles.

S- Right off the top, I get an orange hop aroma. Past that, you get lemon, funk, and yeasty notes, plus some apple, pear, and light banana.

T- Mainly bready, but with the same flavors mentioned in the aroma. There's some pepper in there as well. I get a pretty big dose of white grapefruit on the finish. Overall pretty bitter, almost sour.

M- Pretty light on the tongue. Sharp carbonation. Lightly drying with an almost oily exit.

O- I enjoyed this beer. I would buy Local 1 over this one every time, but it was good all the same.
