Citrus forward as you would expect. Pretty smooth, not overly hoppy. Not bad.

Pours an innocent and light yellow color, there is a haziness about it that seems to be yeast/derivative. 1/3" loose bubbled head white in nature. Aroma was grain and almost no hop quotient discernable.

Taste, more problems, the hopping is even lighter. Smacks just as much, if not more of a blonde ale instead of a pale ale or extra pale ale. The yeast they choose comes across as possible belgian? Something weird phenolic and spice rack underneath the grain presence. The bitterness is there, clocking in around 40-50 ibu, but there is just no hop flavor, not even grapefruit really to speak of, just all high alpha acid type stuff with nothing to add in terms of taste.

I'd give these away if they were in my fridge.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; best by 03-04-18.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, golden to amber color with a half inch, white head, patchy retention, and modest, fragmented lacing.
S: Floral bouquet: honeysuckle, rose. Aromas of grasses and light barley malt.
T: Very grainy flavor with persistent, stronger than expected bitterness on the back end.
M: More medium bodied than expected. Carbonation subtle, but present.
O: Thought I'd enjoy this more than I did. A bit too bitter for the overall flavor profile. Unlikely to be back.
