Growler thanks to my pal Vince. Dry, crisp, and chuggable. A hint of citrus followed by a torrent of hoppy, grassy, bitterness. Excellent beer.

64oz growler courtesy of hamilton23. Cheers, Steve! Thanks so much for this one. Never in my life when I started this hobby did I think that I would love a hoppy pale ale so much. So it goes.
Pours a mostly clear yellow gold with a white head that recedes and laces. Nose is some mild pine, some white grapefruit, some herbal mild dank, and some earthy grassy hops. Flavor starts with lemon, moves to white grapefruit then quickly into pine and mild citrus with a hint of earthy and grassy hops. Light in body with lingering pine in the finish. Definite A Game beer.
