On nitro at the brewery. Served in a snifter. Hazy pale golden body. Creamy nitrogenated head. Smells strongly of citra hops and pale malt. Taste is citra hops, sweet pale malt, light grapefruit behind it all. Creamy, of course. Kinda works on nitro, which I seldom say. I'd like to try it on a regular tap, but I'm enjoying this all the same.

Nitro draught at brewpub.

A: Cloudy/hazy yellow-amber with a nice creamy, fluffy white head typical of nitro-taps. Great retention and thick lacing, as expected as well.
S: Citrus, mango, and mild strawberry forward, but as head diminishes (slowly) it becomes a very slight bit vegetal.
T: Solid, light honey sweetness up front before a switch to a citrus and tropical fruit hops, and a decently bitter finish with a fair tangerine linger.
M: Creamy and silky as expected with a medium body.
O: A pretty solid offering. Having had the nitro, I'd now love to try a cask.

Draft: Poured a clear pale yellow color male with a large enough foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits hops with lightly sweet malt base. Taste is dominated by an explosion of citrus notes with some of tropical fruit and even some fruity ester with lightly sweet malt base. Body is light for style with good carbonation. I really enjoyed the mix between some light pale malt with huge fruity hops aroma.
