A -- A hazy straw golden brew pours to a four finger white head which settles very slowly to a thick froth, leaving thick spots of lacing on the glass.

S -- A solid farmhouse funk balanced by a twist of grass and citrus peel, backed with earth tones and herbal esters.

T -- Bold and bright lemon zest up front, herbal hop tones and the essence of rosemary and lavender. Light malts show in a mild biscuit undertone. Well balanced bitterness and a light fruit notes in the finish.

M -- Light to moderate in body, very effervescent carbonation. Fully showcasing dryness.

D -- Excellent brew, worth a try and a very admirable representation of a single hop variant.
