Clear and shiny like freshly polished brass. Has an off-white froth. Smells of subtle light fruits and distant hops. Fruit and malt forward with a quick hop strike at the back. Lighter body. Obviously made for drinking, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Pours perfectly clear gold. Nice levels of hop spices with an overall earthiness and inkyness that lingers as an accent. Leafy citrus is most dominant. Overall an interesting mix of flavor character that very much leans towards an earthy and leafy thing. Interesting to try; not sure if it's something I would go back to though.

this was a clear, brain shining golden color. It poured with a large fluffy white head.

Lots of leafy, grassy hops in the nose and on the tongue, maybe a little citrus rind as well. Biscuity, bready malts for balance. Much better than the Hop Ticket pils, but this isn't one I need to revisit.

DATE TASTED: May 23, 2015... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: Easing into the night after Shan, Mary, Ricah and the boys it the WineFest... APPEARANCE: First, the head: like overyeasted dough, the head rises like sea foam above the lip by a good inch! ( a prior bottle poured itself out the glass!); the ebbing tide leaves thick, clinging clumps of snow-white moss; the body is pale golden yellow with hefty floating sediment that settles at the glass's bottom... AROMA: definite flowery hops and biscuit malts moderate each other; some lemon zest and citrus, but not as big as an IPA would normally be... PALATE: fizzy, lively, and thin early with a dry, reasonable aftertaste; medium-bodied...TASTE: light and crisp as promised; light bitterness; lemon zest dominates, but the overall flavor is not an IPA, in the American sense--more like an English IPA in its drinkability--more spritzy than strong, more crisp than crunchy... OVERALL: Drinking this as last year's Hop Ticket Session IPA, the beer is (literally) a refreshing take on the genre; indeed, sessionable and refreshing...
