12oz bottle, BB JUL.2015
A - thick, persistent, creamy, white head; hazy pale golden body
S - zesty nose with lemongrass, spicy coriander, yeast
T - similar to aroma with spicy yeast, grass, lemon zest, faint lime zest, wheaty malt
M - medium body, semi-bitter, very dry finish
O - really great use of accentuating the Sorachi hop. I really liked this. You have to like a dry finish to enjoy this one. It might be the dryest finishing beer I've ever had.
