COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Floback (522) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle at Front Page sports bar, Indianapolis, IN. Pours a hazy golden body under a thumbnail of white frothy head that diminishes to a small layer of suds. Lacing is very thick and frothy. The aroma is rich with citrus and floral notes. The taste is very similar to the aroma with a large hops presence. Grapefruit, soap, floral, and biscuit. Metallic after-bite. Medium carbonation and medium/full body. Not too much going on here with complexity, but a highly drinkable session IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I imagine this ia what armpit sweat tastes like. A little salty, real stinky and a mild bitterness. Like an IPA gone horribly wrong.
