3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Full Sail... Poured pale, straw/yellow with a thick, retaining, bright white head. Nose had a great pilsener hopped character. Nice bitterness, freshly hopped. Quite green actually. Earthy, grassy, citrus hop spices with a biscuit malt balance and super clean finish that cut the bitterness. One of the best Fresh Hop beers I have had this 2012 season.
