Growler poured into glass

Hazy golden yellow, thin layer of white bubbles. No visible carbonation.

Aroma of pine, grassy

Slight bitter bite on the front of the tongue, pine hops in the middle, bitter aftertaste on the back of the tongue.

Smooth, little carbonation.

Good iPa , fresh and worthy of a growler refill

A: Hazy (probs from Galaxy dry hopping) medium golden with brighter yellow straw highlights. 2 finger, loose, pillowy and light, starchy white head.

S: Herbaceous, woody, green smelling beer. Sarsparilla, grapefruit, orange,

M: Meringue like. Creamy, smooth and light bodied. Moderate carbonation. Soft and lasting astringency.

T: As expected large grassy notes combine with solid pale malts to give the tropical passion fruit and leafy lime citrus flavor give a pie like finish. Lots of bready and toasted. crust. notes. Bitter and light spice notes, blood orange. Has a low-moderate medicinal quality. Clean tasting and an excellent hop profiling beer, which is also it's limiting factor.
