Pours a pretty clear amber/orange, with a finger of off-white head. Good lacing even though the head mostly dissolves.
Smells of grapefruit/citrus, pineapple, and a wet fresh pine cones from the hops, also as fresh wet hop beers go it also smells a but like marijuana but more crisp.
Tastes exactly like it smells with a bigger punch, more tropical fruits present, and the bitterness of the hops is wonderfully balanced. It's got a slight sweetness to it through the bitterness that makes it perfect.
Feels thinner than I expected, not as resiny or syrupy as an Imperial IPA, but it's actually more drinkable because of this fact. Nice carbonation, but not overpowering which is good. It allows you to taste the beer and doesnt just bite your tongue.
I will definitely be buying this one again. Great beer overall.
