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.
