Draft at Atlas. Had to double check that I had the correct beer. Pours a pale gold with a white head. The nose is nice enough, fair amount of citrus, soft orange blossom and grapefruit rind. Some biscuit malts hanging out. Would guess Centennial hops? On tasting, medium-high bitterness with a supporting malt backbone. Clean and citrusy. Nothing amazing, but not a bad beer. As with the others, look forward to seeing it’s evolution.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of sweet citrus with a bit of tropical fruit and a light sweet grain backing. Flavor is full of earthy but sweet citrus with a hint of bitter rind in the finish.
