Kegged this beer last night. Being impatient (carb not complete), I'm having a sip now. Nice light color as you can imagine, very nice mild and smooth (but noticable) hop flavor. A little on the cloudy side (I forgot whirlfloc tablet). Very nice 2 finger head, settles down to a 1/2 finger, but nice tight and bright bubbles, good lacing.

Overall - Nice flavor for beer lovers, but nice and light and smooth for average beer drinker. I can see having this on tap most of the time. I'll do it again.

with those light beers are very easy to infuse with stuff like lime zest and 1/4 oz of Amarillo for 7 days
