Faint citra hops but more malt than zombie dust. Solid pale ale

Had on draft in Milwaukee

A - a copper body and very thin white head.

S - Grapefruit, grass, floral notes, and spice.

T - A very unique hop flavor - grapefruit, earth, resin, and spice. Malt is biscuity and fairly hearty. A sustained bitterness on the finish.

M - Medium bodied and well carbonated.

O - A great pale ale. Like Sierra Nevada on steroids.
