A- Can poured into a goblet with a hazy golden yellow body and a half inch creamy white head. The crown falls fairly quickly to a medium belt around the edges. A few small sheets of lacing remain on the glass.

S- Hops make up most of the aroma with light overall strength of smell. Timid citrus, floral, grassy and herbal hop notes atop a base of light malts. Fades pretty quickly after just a few sips.

T- Again the hops make up most of what is going on but are neither pungent nor that distinctive as a general amalgamation of lemony citrus, flowers, herbs, grassy and spicy hop notes land on the taste buds. Just a hint of sweetness as the grains and yeast are mostly silent besides some breadiness.

MF- Light bodied and leaning just a tad towards the watery thin side of things as it lacks much texture. Just a bit puffy but that dies down fast. High end, smooth carbonation and a slight hint of bitterness.

Hoppy, even if just a bit, summer brew that lacks any major flaws but also doesn't stand out above many of the pale ales available today. Lemony citrus and not much else.

3.7/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: pours a yellowish orange color with a 1/2" head that falls to a spotty surface covering.

Smell: very little aroma here as only a little citrus comes through.

Taste: a wheat base provides some lightness. Orange, lemon zest, pear, and a moderate bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp throughout.

Overall: a refreshing ale that is very easy to consume.

16.9oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Sunny golden color with a very slight haze. The big rocky white head never budges an inch and leaves chunks of foamy lacing on the glass.

S: Fresh and bright hop aromas of freshly cut grass, pithy orange, and wildflowers. Underlying toasty and bready malts. Simple, clean, and great.

T: Spritzed orange and lemon. Freshly cut grass. Floral and pithy. Pine. Oily. With stiff bitterness. Clean. Toasty and grainy malt base. Bready too. Grassy, pithy, and oily hop bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Soft, airy, and creamy texture. Some gripping hop astringency. Bite of crisp, acute carbonation.

O: Crisp and clean with a nice hop bite. Refreshing and quaffable. It's exactly what you want it to be as a summer seasonal.
