Poured into a standard pint glass a dull lighter golden with a thinner wispy white head atop that is gone pretty quickly.Aromas of herbal and faint grassy hops along with a toasted grain note,not really in your face.Flavors are quite"green" with grassiness from the hops standing out mostly along with lighter herb,a firm toasted malt base that gives off some mild biscuit swetness.I think the Bravo hop would go well in a pils or other lighter lager,it seemed just a bit off in an APA.I like that OH is now brewing a single hop batch,this is the only one I have tried to this point.

Hazy gold under a quickly fading head that leaves behind a skinny ring at the edge and some drippy lacing. Earthy, dank, leafy aromas with some faint orange peel. Mild, vague hop flavor. Dry earthy bitterness, grass, and husky grain. Medium-light bodied, prickly carbonation, and lingering bitterness. Not the best choice of hops for a single-hop beer, especially a pale ale. Probably better suited for bittering additions only.
