Notes: Formally known as Onsight #7, Vagabond Dreamer starts with a simple grain bill of American 2 row barley, oats, wheat and combined with generous amounts of Citra and Vic Secret. The blend of yeasts creates a pillowy soft, saturated mouthfeel that carries notes of melon, stone fruit, berries and gives way to a resinous, deep citrus finish.

A: Pours a hazy straw yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Lots of citrus and dank/herbal hops up front. Some lighter grassy notes in the back

T: Follows the nose. A mix of citrus and dank up front along with the herbal and grassy undertone. Moderately bitter. Finishes with lingering citrus and herbal notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Glad they decided to brew this one full-time. Very easy to drink with a good mix of citrus and dank hop notes. Worth a drink

Pours a gorgeous bright gold color, fully opaque with a one finger silky off-white head. Spotty lacing and poor retention.

Vibrant orange and floral tropical notes on the nose.

Taste is also strong with fresh orange and grapefruit pith notes - this has a moderate bitterness that creeps in fairly quickly and lingers into the finish where the pith really comes through. The flavor up front is nicely semi-sweet and bright.

Mouthfeel is soft and fairly well carbonated.

This is just a fantastic surprise from Battery Steele. I gotta find some more of this one now. For those NEIPA lovers out there just ask yourself if you don't mind a tart finish because otherwise this is a world class take on the style.
