look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Lots of super citrusy (orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit) and slightly floral hops

A: Bright, light yellow color, super hazy with small white tight head that has solid retention, some lacing in the glass is evident.

T: Hop flavors of citrus, well balanced by the malt – the flavor is clean and juicy. There is excellent balance between the hops and malt, coupled with a light grassy bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Excellent; the beer has a great citrusy and somewhat complex hop aroma and flavor, coupled with excellent balance from the malt. The beer has a great, clean and juicy character – making it easy to drink!

Thanks to Goldstar81 for sharing this one at the LA Beer Talk bottle share.

Pours a murky golden-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and grapefruit juice aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit, citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super tasty, but the citrus hops come through slightly better in the smell to me.

Serving type: growler.

Hazy yellow color. Super hoppy and dank. The citra hops really show. It is dank and fruity. Does this even count as a blonde? By far the top blonde ale I have had.
