L: Pours fairly clear gold with a slight chill haze crowned by a 1” fluffy white foam collar.
S: Flowery, spicy hoppy nose.
T: Rich and bready light malts strongly seasoned with spicey hops.
F: Medium to medium light body, medium to medium high carbonation, crisp.
O: A few years ago I bought several of these and aged them. Dumb move. Drink fresh and it is incredibly good.

On tap at TRIA Taproom in Philadelphia. Served in their stemmed tulip glass. Nice inviting smell and great taste. Kind of a hippy blonde ale. Super tasty.
