On tap at the source
Mostly clear light golden color with a huge bubbly head. Earthy pine with a very slight Belgian yeasty or plastic phenol. Wicked carbonic bite on the tongue. Decent but seems way over carbonated as did the other beer I tried today.

M - Refreshing a tad sticky
O - Great APA, tons of flavor, well balanced.
