A super hazy golden straw colored body hosts a fuzzy inch of off white foam. Head fades to a rocky skim in a couple of minutes. Some scattered lace is left behind.

Nose is where I really start to get interested. Vibrant and floral with notes of citrus, wild honey, graham crackers and dandelions. Nose is very complex and quite inviting.

The taste is citrus rind and fresh grassy hops. Malt plays well to balance with tones of graham like breadyness. Spice builds and becomes prickly as you drink, it is almost rye like.

Mouthfeel is smoothly bitter and pleasant throughout. This is not a harsh brew on any level, just mellow hop enjoyability and a great drinking experience.
