A - Pale yellow color, tiny carbonation bubbles, nice lacing.

S - Very lemony and hoppy. Slightly dry. Not real earthy or full of esters, but still fragrant and appealing.

T - Hoppy and crisp. Lemon. Very west-coast IPA like. Mild sweetness.

M - Light to medium light body.

O - A tasty, light saison, full of hops and easy to drink. Could use a tad more tartness or body, but it's still refreshing and easy to get down.

Poured a pale, cloudy golden body with two finger head and some lace patches. The aroma is slightly spicy and grainy with a good chunk of citric hops. Beer is easy to drink as it is smooth and the citric hop profile is nice. The hop profile expands from just citric to also a spicy, dirty, grainy taste profile. Unfortunately, for a saison at least, the hops are too powerful for much of anything else. The fruit flavors and tart/funk barnyard characters one might expect are almost nill and there is not much a malt base profile at all. In summation, a mostly hoppy beer with a slightly sour edge.
