Brau Brothers Hundred Yard Dash Fresh Hop Ale

This "ridiculously fresh hopped ale" is from the Brau Brothers Brewing Company of Lucan, Minnesota. The beer pours amber and light copper in color. There is a short head of off-white foam that leaves light lacing down the glass. The aroma is hop forward, resinous, pine, citrus, orange, very ripe cantaloupe with a light spiciness and a pleasant musk. The taste follows the aromas directly, many  nice hop flavors on a malt base substantial enough to hold them up, but the hops remain always at the forefront. There is a medium strong bitterness and dryness on the finish, but it remains smooth.
