Bottle into glass

A - pours a dark golden orange, a little murky but not as many floaters as something like celebration. Moderate/large bubbly head, head rather quickly dissipates but leaves heavy lacing.

S - lots of hops and citrus, along with a touch of sweetness

T - follows the nose well, a ton of beautiful hops and grapefruit. I taste a little lemon/orange for the citrus along with the obvious grapefruit, followed by a little sweetness, has a bit of a bready finish (which I think makes it more drinkable)

M - medium/heavy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

O - the big flavored hops and grapefruit is something I love.
