Pours a clear medium golden with peach hues and a foamy half inch ivory head that dissipates fairly quickly into a thin layer, leaving modest lacing.
Grapefruit, resin, and fresh cut grass form the initial aroma. Dank cannabis and onion surface later, accompanying slight caramel sweetness.
Flavor follows suit, with grapefruit underlying the entire profile, tart at first, then pithy at the slightly bitter finish. Onion, pine, and resin mingle with bready malt to form the backbone. There's a toasted character at the finish. It's a little lacking in malt flavor, giving a slightly watery perception.
Body is moderate to slightly light, with carbonation a touch on the high side, slight astringency, and a touch of alcohol warmth.
Very good hop character in both flavor and aroma. Bitterness is not overwhelming. Possibly a little too complex to truly be an all day drinking beer for me, but I enjoyed the flavoring and aroma hop profiles. A little more malt character, and it'd be excellent.
