It pours hazy gold wtih a bright white and creamy head. Aromas of hops, hops, and more hops rise up; grapefruit and pineapple stickiness above all else.
Sweet and bready starts it off, but the resinous hops add an astringency that clears that out right away. There is something of a lack of serious depth and intricacy, but nevermind -- it's excellent all the same. Smooth and easy going, stiff bitterness that isn't overwhelming, and seriously drinkable. I like it a lot.
