Poured 22oz bottle into snifter. Clear and yellow with a soft white 2 finger head and spotty lacing on my glass. Aroma is very green and leafy with some light bready malt and yeast. Flavor is hoppy with a green taste (almost like a wet hopped beer) with some leafiness and grassiness. The malts are light and there is a touch of yeast to round it off. Very light feel and lower ABV that makes it ideal for warm weather. Well hopped and flavorful.

22 oz. bottle purchased at Lawson's 8th Anniversary Sale and poured into Lawson's tulip glass.

L: 2F+ head with decent retention, lots of lacing and a good ring/cap. Beer is a very hazy copper.

S: Light malts, yeastiness, wheat. Light citrus and pine on finish.

T: Light wheat and malt up front, light grapefruit and pine. Yeasty. Crisp and bitter finish (hello, Centennial hops)

F: Light to medium body, medium carbonation, which helps with crisp finish and doesn't prolong bitterness. The bitterness and carbonation keep you from pounding this one quickly. Well constructed.

O: Not my favorite style, but as good as a rendition of it as I have tried. Always worth trying new things.

On tap, 12oz. pour. Then later at the Lawson's Anniversary event.

Look: Clean straw color, pure white head, foamy, settles to ring around the glass. Lots of stick lacing.

Smell: Get the crisp citrus hops up front, lemon zest, and a bit of pine. A bid of breadiness.

Taste: A nice smooth full flavored brew. Full of crisp hoppy flavor with a balancing sweet malt backbone. Touch of honey, touch of yeasty dough.

Feel: Moderate level of carbonation, medium body, smooth and easy to drink.

Overall: A tasty light brew, great flavor full flavor for the ABV.

Solid. Not as bitter as the label would lead you to believe. But that's fine by me.
