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 thanks to jcwattsrugger, thanks for the opportunity! Lightly hazy gold with steady, active carbonation. Aroma is grassy and citrus hops with traces of pine. Smells nice.

Flavor matches the aroma. Starts with some toasted grain and grassy hops, grapefruit and pine toward the finish. The bitterness is short and abrupt with a body that is on the lighter side of medium. The brewer hit the mark for the style and is exactly what is advertised. Nice hop flavor with a crisp, refreshing quality.

Bottle. Golden body. Frothy, white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of citrus, pine, lemon, toasted grain, resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Thin, but plenty of hop flavors of citrus, pine and lemon.

Tap somewhere in Indianapolis. Orange color, white head. Smells hoppy, fruity, citrus, etc. Taste is similar.. Kind of bitter, but not too much. Very fruity and easy to drink. Something I would gladly have again. I feel like the Upland beers are not translating to bottle as well as the draft counterparts, because I feel like this was a pretty good beer.
