Very clean and light pour, straw blonde with no haze. One finger of white head. Lots of citrus and fruit in the aroma. Some dank notes and a hint of malt balance. Very light bodied. Dry with a light bitterness. Mostly citrus rind in the flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at founders. Now 5.5% and seems more like an APA. Iím not sure if this is a SMaSH beer but it could be. Pours clear straw gold with white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, catty, and guava with very subtle onion/garlic. Flavors continue nice and piney/woody, grapefruit and guava, and less oniony. Malt is nice, toasty slightly breaded. Really dry and crisp. Seems 100% golden promise and mosaic. Hopping is great, not over the top but there in every way you want. This is exactly what I want my hoppy pales to be.

Pale yellow color large off white head. Nose is grapefruit pineapple and biscuit. Light cool body, very fruity hop flavors, grapefruit, mango. Slightly dry finish, guessing this is all day with some high end hops. Very enjoyable sessionable beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery in Grand Rapids. 6.5% ABV
An aggressive and highly hopped ale.
Light golden in color with an unimpressive head and minimal lacing.
The aroma reeks of hops, perhaps some fresh hops at that. Tropical fruit mixes with earthy pine. This mix is stronger and less pleasant in tasting, but with a clear impression of somewhat skunky weed.
O: A disappointing offering but likely only because I didnít care for the specific hop (Mosaic) used.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served in the taproom. Cloudy golden yellow pour with eighth inch of beige head. Super juicy sweet grapefruit citrus aroma. Soft carbonation, somewhat watery mouthfeel, very clean finish. Very juicy grapefruit hop and strong mango-like fruit flavor. Very similar to their harvest ale but lighter and a bit saltier. Exquisite beer for sure.
