3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Tap: Bright, goldenrod body with a mild chill haze off the bat & a modest layer of white foam that sits quietly on top. Aroma is loaded with sticky hop oils, dankness, oranges, wet grapefruit, sweet bread, grass, citrus peels, & a finishing crispness from the yeast. Taste is very similar - very sharp & crisp up front, most likely from the lagering yeast. Bread, crackers, dry, dry, dry! Lots of grassy hops, dank hops, & sharp citric notes with grapefruit peel, faint white pepper, & mild finishing orange. Dry, crisp, clean finish with a hint of cracker-y malt & breaded yeast. Shorts does a lot of hoppy brews (& even hoppy lagers)... this is one of my favorites in recent memory. I really hope this finds its way into bottles soon.

On tap at shorts. Pours transparent amber with thin fine head.aroma of citrus hops and light malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Taste with bready dry ( wet hopped) hops. Better balance than most wet hopped brews I have had. Flowery finish. Not to heavy. Really nicely balanced wet hopped brew.
