This is a medium bodied and Easy drinking wet hopped fresh brew. Oily head ( two fingers) and not much retention. Tastes fresh with some resinous hop flavors. Juicy hops. Nice brew I picked up at the Shorts Brewery. This is a definite try if you get the opportunity.

12 ounce bottle to pint

Pours a clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Smell is piney with some citrus notes. Taste has a good fresh hop bitterness, with some with some of the flavors from the nose. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall it's pretty good, crisp and clean flavor.
