750ml cork and caged bottle. 75% Galaxy, 25% Nelson stated on the back, dated 5/31/2017. Served in a Casey stemmed glass.

Pours a slightly cloudy medium yellow body, one finger white head, good retention and tons of lacing. Smell is rich grapefruit, a bit of tropical fruit and grass, not as much spice I expected from the Nelson addition, but still super grassy and grapefruit-forward from the dry-hopping. A bit of lemon and leather, light grainy sweetness rounds it out. So crisp and aromatic. Flavour is a crisp tropical fruit and grapefruit aromatic flavour that dances on the palate, with a little grassiness on the backend, touch of spice and lemon but it's definitely predominantly Galaxy here. That Casey house minerality, mild-moderate acetic acidity, light lemon and trace funk. Not a particularly funky beer but complex and tasty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, light dry lemon and grapefruit on the backend, good carbonation, touch of leather lingering after the fact. Wonderful dry-hopped saison; I really think the dry-hopping accentuates the best parts of what the house yeast produces. I have yet to find a dry-hopped Casey beer that I did not enjoy.
