Almost more of a belgian ale than an APA by the style characteristics, with a grassy farmhouse character in the nose that goes well with the hoppy grassy taste. Yeast and hops synergize beautifully into one hella drinkable pale. Draft at Novare Res, one of the most exciting beers I had during my stay in ME.

Draft at When Pigs Fly. Clear yellow pour with thin head. Aroma is straw, grassy hops and a mild funk.

Flavor starts with straw and a trace of funk. The brew finishes with grassy and yeast. Very low bitterness with a nice effervescent mouthfeel. Mild citrus tones in a medium body. Crisp, dry texture. Very nice stuff.
