Pours a lightly hazy pale golden amber with a medium foamy/lacing off white head. Tons of hop residue form the pellets they use. This is the most hops I have noticed ina commercial beer every. Boy did they drop hop it and not filter it thats for sure. Aroma of floral and lightly citrus hops. Various fruits and a very little bit of caramel malt hiding in the back. Flavor of hops (mostly lemon and flowers), slight bitterness, some malt balance with hints of graininess. Kind of thin and watery though.

Nice hoppy aroma. Slightly hazy orange brown pour with a small head ans a bit of lacing. Hops are the biggest flavor with a slight malt undertone and a hop aftertaste. Not too bitter, a good balance.

Bottle- Pours a light gold color, with lots of head. Not too fond of the flavor. I couldn’t describe it, another rater said lemon grass, I’ll have to agree. Not terrible, but definitly not among the better pales.

In the bottle at the Max & Joe’s Tavern Michigan Beer tasting (11/21/6). Orange gold with a quick white head. Neat medicinal hop aroma. Finish is of a strong drying hop bitterness. The hop tartness of distinct citrus oil is clearly evident.
