Judging by past reviews, the brewery has updated the recipe and come out with a better beer (according to most, I would say) or the fact that I had a fresh keg (tapped same day) made a huge difference. Poured a golden orange body with two finger head and the aroma is fresh, piney, citric, even soapy hops with a touch of malt behind it. Beer is smooth, easy to drink, the hops are fresh and tasty with citric, even some grape, notes and finish prickly and crisp on the backend and there is balance from minimal (caramel) malts.
