A: Pours a hazy golden orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of sticky lace is left behind.
S: Sorachi Ace hops for sure. A fruity/lemony aroma with some grassy and floral aromas as well. Plenty of sweetness as well. Simple, but it is really a huge nose that I love.
T: Follows the nose. Big on the fruity hops. Lemon and citrus are dominate. Grassy and floral as well. A big sweetness, dark fruits, and even some toasted malts for balance.
M/D: A medium body that is well carbonated. Creamy and smooth. Very easy to drink. This is gone in no time, and something I can drink all day.

This is Blind Pig's version of "Illinois Craft Brewer's Guild annual collaboration Brew." 15 craft brewers use the same recipe, but a different hop variety. This version uses Sorachi Ace hops. A strange hop variety, but I think it works great. A highly inventive beer, and one I highly recommend.
