Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip glass. It pours a beautiful slightly hazy straw color with a thick bright white head that settles into a thin cap.

The smell is lemon citrus with a hint of grass. These is a slight pleasant funk. The taste reminds me of being in a field on a summer morning. There is a light sweetness at the start with a blast of lemon from the hops and some fruitiness. The finish is clean, dry and refreshing. There's a hint of a pepper with pleasant alcohol warmth. This is an excellent beer.
