Hazy golden-orange, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Grassy, piney, citric simcoe profile with a noticeable, but light, pale malt presence. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, moderate bitterness.

jgb9348 (6583) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Crystal clear coloured golden body with a thin, one centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of bright herbal and slightly sweet hops with a light hay and yeast note and some smells of honey and flowers. Light-bodied; Assertive floral and grassy note of hops with a good bitterness and a light finish showing mostly hops and quite a bit of grass, hay and yeast. Aftertaste is mild and pleasing with the hop flavours the strongest and no funky flavours or pungent notes, just the simcoe flavour of hops and a lot of dry, herbal notes. Overall, a nice and well received beer that shows exactly what you want from a session-style beer, a lot of flavour with no heaviness and assertive complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-March-2014.

On tap at Odd Side Brewpub. Golden yellow with a medium white head and some lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, grapefruit and sweet malt. Taste of pine, resin, citrus, over-roasted malt and finishes up a hair dry with moderate bitterness.

Pours golden with some hop matter and such, but it is unfiltered. Aroma is nice Simcoe but could definately use a boost. Palate is nice malty start but nicely layered Simcoe slowly creeping to a peak of good bitterness. A great session beer!

12 ounce bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium white head. A rich floral nose with some citrus. Smooth, light flavors, low bitterness, citrus, grapefruit especially, orange peel. Very nice. Both a big beer and isn’t meant to be.
