Copper with a white head. Aroma and flavor are definitely one sided with the rustic, light citrus, some resin. Dry bitter finish. Quite bitter for a pale. Good but I’d like a bit more complexity.

Pint at Star Bar. This is a ridiculously hoppy beer. Looks good with a very clear pale body and a tall white head. Huge, pungent, real hop aroma on this. It’s very citrusy with a bit of ammonia and dank herb. The palate is light and bone dry. This is a session IPA, guys. I guess the 5.2% is debatable. Very aggressive hop flavor in the flavor as well. This is bright and endlessly hoppy. These light bodied, hop bursted beers can be a little grassy and this is no exception. It makes it seem like basically eating hops. Commendable execution.
