UPDATED: AUG 21, 2012 Keg. Hazy gold, white head. Some biscuits, lots of citrus fruits, flowers, pine. Definitely get the citra hops. Although not super hoppy, floral hops dominate the nose and taste.

Cask. Frothy white head on a slightly hazy golden body. Biscuity, doughy, hops are a little earthy and soapy...very lively though. Nice bitterness, clean bright citrus and slight soapy hops. Medium to lighter slick body.
