COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our first S.M.A.S.H. beer, brewed with Optic malt and Pacific Jade hops to highlight the unique flavor profiles of both ingredients. Light, and easy drinking with a subtle hop bitterness and a decidedly peppery citrus note, this is sure to be a go to session beer for the summer.

Draft at Glenís. Cloudy golden yellow color, white head. Aroma of rising sourdough bread. Taste is bready dough and grapefruit.

ben4321 (4066) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Location: Draft at Range, 5/24/14

Aroma: The nose of this one is light hops, some citrus, lemon, and a bit of spice as well
Appearance: It pours a murky looking yellow color with an off-white colored head
Flavor: The flavor is light and a little hoppy, with some citrus and spice notes and not a lot else
Palate: The body is on the lighter side, with an okay mouthfeel, and a decent, light dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was decent, but it wasnít a favorite for me. Still, it is a drinkable beer. You could easily do worse than this.

On draft. Aroma of sour and piss. Bad start. Cloudy straw color. Tastes nothing like the aroma: clean, lemony citrus hops. Nice quencher, just leave your nose out of it.

Cloudy yellow pour and what tastes like Belgian yeast here with some floral aromas. Floral, sweet finish. Tap at Glenís. Thanks to Travlr for a taste of this.

nimbleprop (5088) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 10, 2014
4oz pour at the brewery. Pours a hazy bright yellow, ring of white head. Looks like pineapple juice. Nose had a ton of juice, pineapple mostly, some starfruit, a little bit of starchy water, some lemon lime soda. Flavors of lime soda, some mild malt, pineapple, some Asian pear, mild yeast. Clean finish, zero bite.
