Semi hazed, strong, dark, golden hay color with an overall peachy tone. Nice frothy, crunchy, yellowed foam gathers quickly to about a half inch thick and remains there for quite a while. Lots of thinnly placed lacing in drizzled, spotty patterns.

Aroma is quite pungent and hopped to the gils with a moderate array of citrusy zest and guts with a grassyness whirling about. Herbal notes of all kinds of strange floral stuff make it all the better.

Taste is hazed in a hop fog of broad crusty grasses and lofty puffs of citrus bringing orange, grapefruit, and lime pith mixed with peach fuzz and dried pineapple husk. The grassy herbal undertow grows and grows and it warms creating a more toasted edgyness to it. finishes with all sorts of fun hop grasses and fuzzt fruityness.

Feel is about medium with an all over buzz and cleansing of complex hop tones that grab at the forefront and don't let go. Toasty edges hold firm for good length into the finish as it gets all complex and fulfilling.

All in all, drinkable, and then some. Only 4.5%!! A keeper of a fun, yet bittered brewer brew.

Note: Have had many of these on-tap and find its much more fruity and creamier with an unholy yummy drinkability thats killer good. I may need to review that at some point if I can ever remember to.
