Served in straight pint glass. Poured a lightly cloudy pale yellow color with about 1'4 inch of white head that had good retention and low lacing.

The aroma was all piney and weed hops, with no real malt presence. On the tongue, it was mostly the same, with addition of a slight skunkiness.

The body was definitely on thin, somewhere between soda water and Sprite. Drinkability was pretty good, I had a couple in quick succession. Overall, not one of the top local/regional Fresh Hop brews, but still probably worth a shot if you see it.
