draft at PP Carlsbad. lightly hazed gold body with a fine bubbled white head. direct c-note American hops dominate the nose: grassy, dank, wet, bright, citrus-heavy with touches of melon. moderately creamy carbonation with high bitterness and high hop acids wash and prick the tongue. medium body, lightly chewy. zesty and bright acids abound. well-made and served fresh.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is crisp hoppy, peachy and light grapefruity. Smooth fruity and lingering hoppy into the finish. peteinSD (1468) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Bright golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is clean, balanced hops with pine and perhaps some citrus followed by a bready malt backbone. Taste is bright hops with tropical notes, pine, and a really nice doughy malt backbone. Alpine-esque in some ways. Mouthfeel is a bit heavy but it’s a great beer. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2012
