Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thick and foamy white head...outstanding retention and lacing. Aroma is citrusy with a mild fresh grassy aroma. Flavor is wheaty and has lots of fresh grassiness and nice orangey citrus. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry grassy/citrus bitter finish.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2012
Draught at the Festival of Farmhouse Ales. Pale orange-yellow. Cloudy, with a low but thick head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, Simcoe and Amarillo? Biscuity malt and honey. Big peach flavor, some orange, a little grapefruit and grass, and then some sweet bready and biscuity malts. No caramel at all. Would like to have this on tap in my kitchen.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pours a hazed glowing gold with a medium sized white head. Crisp musk, light dusty hops. Hoppy up front, musk, soft wheat. Soft and gentle, light musk into hops, dusty. Lovely session beer, could drink this all day. Gently musk and a light hop bitterness on the finish.

Session ale perfection. So light and refreshing with great citrus, grass, and dank hop flavor that doesnt result in much bitterness. Very lightly malty and drinkable as all get up!

Tap and growler. Awesome big super juicy hop aroma of pineapple, green grapes, oranges. Very fresh tasting. Taste is crisp refr eshing pineapple, melon, toast. Closest thing to gumball head ive ever tasted, but a bit juicier, more complex than gummed ball head. Just about the perfect session beer. Could go for the a few kegs of this bad boy. A little to good to be sure. Good candidate for a "desert island" beer.

Enjoyed via a 750ML growler filled 2 days ago at the brewery. Itís been in the fridge since then and is being enjoyed in a Duvel Tulip.

A - Poured a hazy straw gold color. 1 Finger creamy head with big and small bubbles. Really nice head lacing was present and the bubbles faded slowly.

S - Lots of big chewy simcoe scent. Pine cones and sap were dominating with some hint of lemon juice and cloves.

T - Very light start to this beer with a hint of light malts that covers the tongue followed by a solid pine resin bitterness and some sugary sweet honey.

M - 80% carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium body.

O - This is a very sessionable beer. Itís light, bright, hoppy and easy to drink. A perfect summer time session ale. Great job Shawn and John!
