Lemon yellow; good head production and decent retention.

Lots of lemon; bright herbs. Very similar to Nelson Sauvin, but far less dank. Very nice, but not super strong or in your face.

Really nice flavor profile. Citrus comes through, in particular lemon, but also a distinct melon note. Peach, very light dankness and earth.

Lively, but very smooth. Not NE IPA levels of creaminess, but really nice medium body for the style and ABV.

Very, very nice. Lovely beer to have available locally. Definitely a good highlight SMASH beer.

This is getting confusing (I think). It appears that the Zythophile series going forward is going to consist of three SMASH beers, designated Cowboy, Nerd and Astronaut. Currently, Cowboy utilizes Citra, Nerd utilizes Centennial, and Astronaut utilizes Nectaron. I'm not familiar with Nectaron, a new New Zealand hops varietal. Very grapefruit-y to me, with fairly strong bitterness. I like it.

Pours a yellow hazy looking color and smells of lighter hops. Mostly floral like and a little funk. Canned 02/27/23 it tastes of light citrus and floral hops. Nice mouthfeel of easy drinking and a hint of bitterness. Overall quite tasty and I’d buy it again when I’m fortunate enough to find it this “fresh”.
