Purchased in NY City. Pour a golden colour with a head that stay long and creates a coat over the brew. Grapefruit and orange aromas. Kind of a creamy mouthfeel. Grainy taste with the hop being strong, but well-balanced. Quite a nice beer that is a mix of a IPA and blonde ale.

Wheat, grass, lemon, orange, grapefruit. Zesty and spicy and pretty hoppy for a golden. Kind of a mix between Headwaters and HopDev.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Armanetti’s. Pours a crystal clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, foamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is solid with grassy oranges and lemons, grainy pale malts, a good amount of florals, and some pepper. Flavor is similar. A good amount of grassy lemons, grapefruits, and oranges up front with a grainy pale malt backing. Florals come in during the middle with a slight piney pepper before this finishes grassy and dry with a crisp, clean, light-medium bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a thinner body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a lighter, but flavorful, crisp, clean, and easy drinking beer. Solid grassy citrus bitterness with a nice floral backing and a balanced, grainy pale malt backing. Nothing special, but they nailed what they were going for. Good one.

Draft at World of Beer Land O Lakes. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Nice residual lacing along the glass. Interesting aroma with an emphasis on the malt, but still a noticeable hop presence. Good flavor for a Summer beer.

Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks decent; a translucent gold with ample head. Smells good! Hoppy for what I expected! Tastes pretty good; definitely one of the better blondes I’ve had. Mouthfeel is good too. Nice!
