On tap at Old Town Pour House, pours hazy golden-yellow with minimal head retention. Lemon aroma, really not too intense. Nice lemon-zest/lemongrass notes, strong cloves appearance, very herbal and earthy. The hops come in strong and don't disappoint. Definitely an interesting hop, the sorachi ace, never had anything quite like it!

Just found this at my local and was very surprised! At first I thought it was a Belgian Wit as these hops have a bit of coriander too. Regardless it's a good ale!
