BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
An elegant showcase for Australian Galaxy hops, this riff on our favorite blonde ale has just the pale malt bill in common with her sister beer, Eureka. Delicate and pleasantly hoppy, with aromatic and flavorful notes of pineapple, passionfruit, and citrus, you'll have a hard time believing this one is so sessionable. Refined and bright, this is the perfect beer for any occasion. We absolutely adore it.

Filled Thursday at the brewery, shared with rudzud on Friday.

Filled yesterday at the brewery. Nice lighter creamy head covering, decent lacing, very hazy blond almost banana yellow color.

Nose is great, fresh hop, nice kiwi hop with fruity aromas, bit of that grassy slight earthy new Zealand terrior, floral light leafy. But with all that comes the pungent citrus slight tropical fruit galaxy hops, a musty dank resin and bit of passion fruit and guava like, great combination of hops. Very little malt bit of touch of blond grainy malt.

Taste starts a little light, light blond malt with little doughy grain like, little watery malt feel. Then great hops though, nice kiwi again, fruity, more grassy slight leafy terrior again, then into tropical fruit and resin, dank musty resin, quite dank, light guava and papaya, no real citrus though, mild passion fruit. Mild to fair overall bitterness with more dry grassy like feel than juicy. Finish is dry, fair bitterness, little watery still, nice kiwi terrior and fruity hops lingering.

Mouth is lighter bod, little watery feeling, decent carb.

Overall very nice but little watery feel too really backup the hops, but the hops are awesome.

From 05/19/15 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing a 16 oz. can of this with me.

Pours a hazy burnt orange color with one inch of white head low to moderate carbonation evident. Lots of galaxy hops, grapefruit, pine hops, fruity malts, lightly bitter. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Light bite.

Overall very hoppy and very nice; loads of galaxy hops which I love and lead to some nice tropical notes. Well worth seeking out.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Delicate speckled lacing around the glass. The smell had sweet juicy citrus over some sweet fresh grass. Light resin. Tropical fruits enter in as it warms. The flavor brings together all of the previously mentioned aromas sweetly with a delicate bitter to juicy underneath. Sharp bitter rind-like aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation rides nice and low. Crisp sweet to bitter dragging across my tongue. Overall, very good as a well flavor-ed beer, but this seemed way more hoppier than a normal blonde/golden ale.
