21st Amendment did a great job on this beer. It clean crisp and refreshing. Its smooth and has that hoppy bitterness I love. You can smell the grapefruit aroma. The beer is a little hazy but I usually drink this one straight from the can. Great beer to have after mowing the lawn or BBQ'N with the family.

Enjoy By: 01/15/15

A: Pours a golden color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a very thin cap that leaves some nice lacing

S: A good mix of malt and hops up front, with some grassy notes and light sweetness. Lightly fruity as well

T: Follows the nose. Grassy hops up front with some light malt sweetness and cereal notes. Fruitiness is light and towards the middle. Finishes with a light bitterness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice and easy drinking brew that provides some nice grassy hop notes and bitterness. Quite quaffable and well priced. Definitely a nice beer to session
