This crisp golden ale is built on the foundation of delicate light malts. This allows us to showcase some of the most interesting and effervescent American hops in a way we have never before done. We saved over 75% of the hops used in this recipe to add after the batch was boiled, allowing the distinct fragrance of grapefruit, apricot and pine to be preserved as much as possible in the finished beer. With a crisp, but subtle bitterness, a refreshingly light malt character, and a 4.5 ABV, this is the perfect warm weather beverage for those who think flavor is just as important as refreshment.

12 oz. bottle poured to a small Czech-pils glass at home, showing a slightly hazed, light gold color, with frothy, soft white head foam that reduced to a persistent, bubbly layer, and left some patchy lacing on the glass. The nose was grass & greenery, ripe pit fruit, a combination of pineapple & mandarin orange, and some berry sweetness. The taste exposed additional citrus as grapefruit to the fore mentioned esters, and a moderate, earthy/dusty, rind & resin bitterness that lingered. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, some dryness joined the bitterness for the finish. Fair enough drinkability.

Cloudy, yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has light citrus and pine notes. It has a light, oily body with lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a slightly dry finish.

GABF 2015. Clear gold color and a white head on top. Flavor is mostly hops, a little malt, light palate but very drinkable. No complaints, just a simple session beer.

Bottle from Breeze Thru. No bottle date. Pale orange pour with a white head. Lightly fruity, mildly hoppy. A bit lemonade-ish in consistency. Shrug? Nothing bad about this, but many better in the style. 11.7

Bottle, pours pale yellow small white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit follows thru to taste. Slightly carbonated nice and crisp. 50 IBU any more would be too much for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong smell of hops, grass and dandelions. Taste has a hint of lemon, and finish is strong with sustained bitterness. The finish lasts too long for that level of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Received as extra in trade. Pours a pale yellow color with a white head. Has a pleasant floral, citrus hop aroma. Flavor is a bit astringent, bitter. Nothing special.
