Smells like citrus and pine hops - very nice. Perhaps this is the "flirty" the bottle informed me of. Decent pine and wet grass flavor but this beer tastes malt-less. Watery even for a session. Camping in the adks drinking Adirondack ale makes me happy.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a two finger high bright white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops and funk are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but the funky flavors are a little stronger and seem to somewhat resemble bits of Brett yeast. Slight amounts of bitterness are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: With the notes of funk in the smell and taste, this beer tastes like a hybrid between an APA and an American Wild Ale.
