Review from notes
Growler filled up a few hours ago to a pint glass

Pours a vibrant golden orange with a finger of head. Low carbonation, good retention and okay lacing

Smells like....simcoe. Very catty pine followed up with a light citrus. A very submissive caramel malt works to back everything up

Taste is nearly identical to the smell. Lots of pine and kitty litter on the tongue, followed again by some citrus and tropical notes. Again, caramel backbone holding everything together

Feel is a light / medium body with moderate bitterness, low carbonation. Alcohol is hidden, it's easy to drink

Overall it's no Pliny but good none the less. Single hop beers are great for getting to know the hops, but I'm always reminded drinking them how boring they become without others to mix up the flavor
