6/30/16 bottling date.

This one pours a slightly hazy straw yellow, with a 1.5 inch head, and lots of lacing.

It smells pretty similar to Arthur, unsurprisingly, but smells a little bit less tart on the nose, with some dry chalkiness, grapefruit, lots of grassiness, mineral water, and lots of citrus.

Arthur is one of my absolute favorite beers, traditionally. The dry hopping adds a few subtle changes. The beer obviously tastes a bit hoppier, with grapefruit, and a pronounced grassiness. The beer is less tart than Arthur, but has that same stone fruit and chalky candied funk that I love in Arthur.

It's super drinkable, with a crisp and clean mouthfeel, with a slight lingering bitterness. It finishes much more dry than the base Arthur.

You had to know that this beer would be a big slam dunk- and it is.

Straw colored body with a hint of haze and a soapy bone-white head. Aroma has a bit of funk, some bready grains, a dash of tree fruits and some lemon zest. Flavor brings through some lemon notes more, with tons of grassy notes and a dash of hay and funk. Feel is very quenching, dry on the finish, medium carbonation. Really great beer that is very refreshing.

This is a top notch batch. Really funky right out of the gate. Super dry and clean. Crisp and quenching. Some floral notes from the hops but minimal bitterness. Excellent.
