64 oz. growler filled at Whole Foods on Waugh in Houston
(consumed on August 14, 2016)

L: 90% clear gold pushes up decent head

S: onion, cilantro, citrusy hops ... slight bit of grapefruit; salty and meaty, green onion; pinch of malt sweetness underneath the hops, fruity peach

T: grapefruit and green onion, loads of hops, solid bitter bite

F: good carbonation, decent weight, nothing out of whack

O: solid pale with huge onion bomb aroma that doesn't quite show up in the flavor; Whole Foods is good about rotating brews and cleaning lines, so I'm assuming this growler was fresh, possibly within a week of going in the keg; it's good enough that I'll try the canned version at some point

Pours a clear amber color with a finger width foamy head. Retention is good. Lacing is great. Has nice fresh grapefruit aroma with piney hops. Big grapefruit taste with good piney hop, followed by juicy grapefruit. There is quite a bit soapiness to aftertaste. Very good beer. Light bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.

On draft at Axelrad.

Pours a clear, deep gold with 1/2 finger of head. Plenty of floral grassy notes. Provides a solid hop bite of bitterness but finishes quite clean. Very solid American pale ale that I would certainly seek out again.
