Pours a beautiful, cloudy amber. Not much head, though, even with an aggressive pour. Lacing is light.
Smells biscuity, a bit of citrusy hops. Not much else.
Ooh, tastes so good. Those biscuity malts come out ever so slightly, paving the way for a grapfruit rind hop flavor. More even balanced than a lot of others in its style. Good stuff. Mouthfeel is great. So crisp and refreshing. Carbonation is fairly high. Lots is tiny, tiny bubbles. Finishes dry.
Drinkability is high. I'm on my second and I could go for one or two more.
Notes: This is very solid beer, especially on a hot summer evening like tonight. I'd put it more in line with an American Pale Ale, but that's neither here nor there. This is sort of like a little brother to Great Lakes' Burning River.
