On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a pint glass. Comes in at 5.5%.

A-Pours a clear, light brown with a one finger head that stays.

S- Definite cat piss with grain in there also.

T-Cat piss with grassy hops. A mellow level of bitterness on the finish.

M-Medium bodied and creamy.

D-Cat piss kills it for me.

Just not a good beer. They advertise it has some citrus hops but that was non-existent. Stick with their IPA and DIPA.
