3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at JDW. Served in a shaker . A: Pale golden, small thick head, moderate retention, lots of lacing, the haze cleared leaving it almost clear. S: Citrus fruits and Cascade hop. T: Grapefruit, gummi bear, just enough IBUs without overdoing it, balanced out by sweet wheaty finish. M: Smooth, minimal carbonation, light body. O: Well made, nice to have two or three on a hot day but slightly too strong for to drink in vast quantities.
