Beautiful golden color with a quick start to the nose; like: what did I just experience? That set my curiosity in motion and found a slice of lime to swim in it. That let me feel relaxed into this lush ale. Enjoy cold...

Pale golden straw color. Smooth & Crisp. Sweet malts upfront. Fruity citrus, grassy hops. Surprising hoppy bitterness that is extremely evident in the aftertaste.
