With a good hard pour I got a huge pillowy head and a turbid tawny orange body. Good retention here and gobs of lacing all about the glass. Floral aroma, earthy, grapefruit, piney, zesty and vibrant on the nose. Bottle is a bit older but I still expected more on the nose in terms of potency than what was given. Solid dry malt body, caramel and toasted bread, solid hop bite, grapefruit an pine. Not very sweet, body is fairly average, with not a rich smoothness to it. I found this beer to be brighter than the northern hemisphere in its hop/beer focus.
