On tap at the brewpub today. Described as an American Bitter loaded with hops, which it is.

Pouring mildly hazy light orange-yellow with a dense, off-white head with nice retention and lacing, this looks nice. The nose is loaded with hops. I was told the keg was close to kicking, which might explain the rather high green/grassy notes, but there's no mistaking the bright, fruity, hoppy notes. Moderately pine-like, a moderate to aggressive bitterness is perceived as well. This is replicated on the palate, with a blend of moderate bitterness, mild resin and grassy hops. Citrus and pine hop flavor is present in large amounts, and there's no malt character here, apart from the required amount that keeps the palate light but not watery. The grassy hop character does get distracting on the finish, but this beer is truly sessionable, and if not for being the hopeless ticker that I am, I would have gone back for a second pour. Recommended.
