A - very clear, no chill haze, golden to yellow hues
S - hoppy floral nose with hints of cannabis, less citrusy, more earthy hops
T - delicious. nicely balanced hops/malt with clean hop profile without being bitter. light enough that goes down like a session IPA when in fact it clocks in at 6.8%
M - smooth and refreshing

This was a damn good beer and I ended up going back for seconds and thirds when I had the chance. Could drink this all night and never know it was 6.8%
