  • Poured clean and clear into my favorite mason mug. The foam was white, sticky, and thick. Retention was above average leaving a sticky coating on the side walls of the glass.

    Aroma is all hops. Citrus and fruit, just like the hops they use suggest. Malt comes through as sweet and slightly bread.

    Taste is sweet and a waft of hops up front and bitterness up front. It quickly transitions with almost nothing happening in the middle. Some minor bread notes and another mild round of bitterness.

    A light bodied beer with maybe a medium carbonation.

    A fun beer that isn't fairly well balanced. Because of the hop level and bitterness a little difficult to throw back one or two at a time. Enjoy.
