I think that this is Trailhead's seasonal this summer....

A - This is the reddish brown hue of some deck stain or wood stain, with a small but persistent khaki head that produces a good amount of lace.

S - Big time grapefruit and pine on the nose, with whole wheat cracker malt notes. Smells like it could be a bit of a hop-bomb!

T - Oh yeah. Grapfruit and pine out the wazzoo. This is not exactly "balanced," but the malts don't shy away from the crazy hoppage. This is their tastiest beer by far.

M - Medium bodied, highly carbonated without being fizzy, and it finishes really dry and hoppy. Nice.

D - The best brew that Trailhead offers by a good distance. This one can go head to head with some of the upper echelon of APAs, and even some IPAs.

A new offering from Traihead, and it matches the style fairly well. A clear amber, very small white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma does provide pine and floral hops – a pleasant scent.

Aroma notes were present in the quaff, this one does have a crisp, clean and properly bittered hop finish. A solid offering, this lil’ brew worked quite well for a short session.
