4.08/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Canned on 5/12/20

Pours a bright, hazy golden yellow body topped with a finger of tight, frothy head; decent retention leaves a creamy, moderate cap/collar with thick rings of lacing walling the glass.

Aroma first pops with fresh orange pulp before easing into tones of grass and corn flakes, followed by a light pilsner malt through the middle as melon rind and more prominent herbal hops shine on the back end.

Taste opens with grapefruit pith and flaky sweet malt, progressing toward light tones of straw and a corn flake sweetness beneath a grassy overtone; fading spicy hops burst past the mid-palate into a nutty tangerine and overarchingly savory fruity tone to the close; a light pilsner malt note prevails on the exhale.

Mouthfeel presents a light body marked with a soft grit along the palate, and a fluffy, upper-level carbonation fading over the mid-palate into a semi-hoppy spritz; evening with a boggy yet refined crispness, the primarily drying finish touches on a lingering, mild bitterness.

A fervently-hopped blonde ale maintaining an almost surprising semblance of balance beyond a fresh, fruity overtone; marrying a tempered bitterness and deft malt character, the result is overtly unique, even style-bending, and yet refreshing to both expectations and the palate.

16oz can undated purchased at the brewery. Hazy gold color and citrusy nose. Tastes include melon and grapefruit and hints of other citrus. Very smooth and easy drinking. A good beer from an excellent brewery.

I never thought I would enjoy a beer with this low of an ABV as much as I enjoyed this beer. Drinks WAY above 5% with a beautiful coating mouth feel. Citrusy and smooth. Just another incredible beer from an amazing brewery.

4.3/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured 12/3/16 from a 32oz growler that was filled at the brewery the previous day, into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy light yellow color, with a thin white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, fruity citrus and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of grassy hops bitterness that remains prevalent as you continue to drink the beer. Then a mild citrus sweetness come in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, very good hoppy representation of style, this is a very good beer to drink for a long time.
