5/23/2010: This might be one of my favorite pictures so far, the colors turned out awesome. I think I might be trading a bit too much lately for my own good. I am starting to lose track of who sends me what. But if you are the person who sent this to me as an extra, and you are reading this, thanks!

I think there was a lot of truth in advertising with this beer. You get the general idea about the smell and taste from the label; floral hops and grassy. This almost drinks like an IPA, as it is pretty damn hoppy. The hops are crisp and clean, mostly floral, a good bit of citrus, and a nice malt base for it all to rest on. A little bit bubbly but I was drinking this on an 85 degree day, so the carbonation was nice. Overall this beer is just very well put together, and a great great summer beer.
