This is one of my favorite summer beers this year....I see it as kind of a Kolsch hopped with Citra....the Citra hops really shine through with all their citrus goodness but the body and malt give this a crisp, Kolsch like feel. Lower weight and lower ABV but loaded with flavor....that makes this a top notch refreshing summertime drinker. Now I need to find it in bottles...

Serving type: on-tap

Pours clear yellow with a pretty big white head that left some sticky lacing and stuck around for a while.

Aroma and flavor are somewhat citra-y, not overpoweringly so, but the hop is certainly noticeable. There's a lightly grainy backbone and a touch of sweet citrus.

Body is light and lawn-mower-y. Carbonation is light and could be a touch higher, but ain't bad.

Overall it's pretty refreshing and fits the description of a blonde ale pretty well.
