The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high creamy off white head that died down and left a collar around the edge, patches of bubbles on the surface, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy and grassy hops along with a light amount of associated bitterness. This beer is easy to drink. Although it is mostly dominated by hop flavors, there isn’t too much in the way of bitternes

on draft at B&C. Cloudy bright gold in color, large white head that dissipated fairly quick and left nice lacing on the glass. Big floral hop notes in the aroma with some cereal, bready malts. Flavor is bitter and bright floral and fruity hops, some cheerio cereal flavor in the back end. Lovely full finish.
