Final tasting notes: this thing is damn tasty! it starts with a light honey-like malty sweetness, followed by an intense, yet very refreshing hop flavor/aroma. my friend described it as strawberry rhubarb-like, and have heard nothing but positive remarks about it. Only downside is it came out pretty hazy, didn't realize how much low flocculation dennys fav 50 yeast is. Very good head though, and a nice body with very low bitterness. Definitely came out more of a blonde ale than a pale ale, definitely will brew this again for summer!
