3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at indigo. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a loose white head. Smells like grass and.crackers with a little savory herbal hop note, maybe rosemary. But not purple dank. Light effervescent body, almost pilsner-like again. Crackers, grass, rosemary mid palate, with a crisp bitey resin finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold colored, ok head. Far more restrained than most Ninkasi brews. Subdued hop aroma with a thin leafyness a sharp bitterness to it. The body too is characterized by a subdued leafy hoppyness across a thin body. Akin to an English Bitter.
