Had to choose this as my first review. 22oz bottle poured into a Weyerbacher tulip
Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a nice 2-3 fingers of cottonlike fluffy head that slowly recedes into a nice evenly distributed surface coating. A nice web of lacing on the glass as I continue to enjoy this brew.
Smell: Citrus and more citrus w/ possibly some pine.
Taste: Wow this beer is fresh as it was recently bottled. Citrus fruits being the dominant feature here. Mainly grapefruit with some traces of lemon and possibly orange. Finish is nice and piney. There is a nice hop bitterness throughout that is not too overwhelming. Nice balance here.
Mouthfeel: Moderate crisp carbonation and medium body. Very refreshing and enjoyable.
Overall: I loved this beer and I wish I traded for more than one bottle. I cannot wait to have their Citra.
Serving type: bottle
