Enjoyed at The Common Market at one of their CM.BEER.EDU series tastings with head brewer Todd Boera. Leap Day 2012.

A - slightest haze on the medium golden-brown color with foamy white head leaving lots of white lacing

S - strawberries, honeysuckle, green hops, light honey; very light aroma overall

T - lots of hops - not necessarily but definitely fruity; dry overall; more hoppy resin towards end

M - crisp, medium bodied with fine, medium carbonation; long, dry, bitter finish

O - nice flavor and hop profile; solid beer but a bit dry and bitter for my taste; i can see it being very enjoyable to others that enjoy the style more
