Jeez this beer is always awesome.

Pours with brilliant clarity in its yellow. Is this Budweiser? Looks professional and consistent enough. The head is mild, 1/4" deep and has a hard time with staying power given the immense amount of hop oils deposited here. Aroma hits you in the face with all the older hop aromas, pine, citrus, dank herb.

This drops a lot of those flavors into the liquid without a high degree of bitterness. Sure, the malt body is barely toasted and dry, but that is so you get so much hops out of this.

On tap at the source. Poured into a pint glass at happy hour for $3.75, a light golden color with a one-inch thick white head which lingers long. Aroma is floral and bright citrus. Flavor is clean and very hop forward. Bitter finish. Packs quite a hop punch. Easy drinking. Seek this out.
