33cl pulloff bb 10/2016. Obviously a new recipe, listing not only 5,0% ABV, but also use of Galena, Nugget, Cascade, Centennial - exit Hallertau Northern Brewer? - Fresh herbal aroma of green grass and melissa, mint and damp wayside herbs. More citrus rind and APA hop nuances in taste on a somewhat more yeasty than usual APA body. Minty fresh finish. Well done.

11.2 oz. bottle thanks to David. Appearance: golden, clear, great head retention, 3 fingers head, good lacing. Aroma: slight molasses, lemon, citrus, light pine. Palate: medium body, average to lighter carbonation, sticky, bitter finish. Taste: sweet molasses and light caramel, into a decent piney and light lemon bitterness that lasts, but not super long. Really more of a pale ale in the US. Overall, very pleasant, nice beer, interesting for the region.
