COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
City of Dreams is a generously-hopped American Pale Ale. El Dorado, Centennial, and Amarillo hops lend this beer a bright, citrusy aroma with hints of tropical fruit. These mouthwatering hops are balanced by a smooth malt base, resulting in a flavorful and well-rounded summer beer.

Clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma is full of citrus hops. It has a light, slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is well-balanced with bittersweet flavor laid over a malty backbone.

Hazy copper color with small head. Pungent hop aroma, fruity, with an impression of vanilla and talc, very nice. Dry mouthfeel; the flavor is perfect for these beers, nice lean toffee, bit of cereals; good hopping, fresh, a bit lemony, and correct bitterness level.
Very nice.

22 oz. bottle, pours a fairly clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is super floral, with nothing much but floral hops. Flavour brings out lots of floral hops, perfume, and soap. Almost too floral, but it does what it does well. A little low drinkability due to the perfume and soap, but it’s still alright.
