On tap at senate.

Hazy orange with white head that lingers we'll.

There is no mistaking the citrusy aromas from the hops. Some pine and zesty herbal notes too.

Medium mouthfeel with a nice punch from the hops. Chewy bread characters from the malt bill. Great hop complexity adds dimension to this IPA. It feels layered with hop character; more floral zesty notes, lemon zest, grapefruit and a bit of pine.

Very nicely done. I enjoyed this until the last drop.

I am in a meadow. The grass grows wildly, rising up past my knee, and I do not recall how I arrived here. I only know that I am looking for something. Someone?

There are flowers. Flowers everywhere. White, red, gold. The air is thick with their scent. To breathe is a heady, wonderful thing.

It's a girl, I'm seeking. In the distance, a cherry tree. She must be sitting there.

Then I lower the glass, and it's all gone.

This is a delightful beer with LOADS of hop scent, they must have just dryhopped with all the flowers they had, but it works--the malt balances it out pleasantly. Not very bitter. There's a bunch of alcohol in there but you'll be too focused on the flowers, and taking the next sip. To see if you can find her this time.
