Bottle: Poured a light dirty yellow color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of dry hops with light dry malt base. Taste is a mix between some dry hops which are almost astringent with a non-descript malt base that is also pretty dry itself. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting but hops profile is somewhat too astringent for my taste.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed gold in color, with a nice cloud-deck of off-white foam.
Aroma-Subtle citrus hop note
Taste-Toasted malt, citrus hops, finishing in a rather soft metallic, soapy finish. Not bad, just not great.

Had on-tap at Teresa's Next Door in Wayne, PA. Poured a golden yellow color with a bit of haziness to it. Nice white head that retained well and left remarkable lacing. Had an aroma of citrus, earthy/floral hops and sweet malts. Pretty simple, but well-balanced. Tasted of lemon, earthy/funky/floral hops, sweet malts and pale grains. Bitter throughout with a dry finish.

On the light side of medium bodied with low carbonation. Okay, but certainly not my favorite beer of the style.
