One of a Series of Pale Ales Showing off a Singular Hops Profile. Light Hazy Gold Coloring with Good Head. Nice Light Malt Background to Help Hold up the Vanguard Hops. Some Ctirus and Nothing but Vanguard. Very Nice.

Just found my notecard from mid-August in a pile of old work clothes. Sugary nose and cloudy body makes it look even colder and more refreshing. Well balanced and frankly, I had two quickly and forgot to take more notes. Circe could serve this one.

GTM. I was a little surprised to have to rate this brew since over 5,000 people had a chance to rate it at the Great Taste of the Midwest and it has been on tap until recently at the brewpub. Brewed with Vanguard hops. Fresh, sweet hoppy aroma. Slightly hazy gold in color with an off-white head. Nice, bitter flavor. A unique hop variety that for some would need to take some getting used to. I thought it was very well done and quite yummy.
