I'm an amateur so this will be some what vague..nice amber color, clear. carbonation is spot on. head about one finger along with. Instantly smell the hops (pine) along with citrus but the hops are definitely stronger. Taste: Very predictable, tastes just as you would think after enjoying the beautiful aromatics..but very delicious. Smooth, nice bitter from hops, some sweenesst and accents of the citrus. Overall a great beer!

Pours a lovely golden/red copper color. The beer itself is relatively cloudy. Nice head that shows great retention the whole way down. Aroma is extremely satisfying. Very bright citrus hop aroma with a touch of pine. Very vibrant aroma. The taste is just like the smell. Nice malt sweetness with a large over the top citrus hop flavor. Not as bitter as expected, but this ale really packs in the hop flavor. Citrus, candied grapefruit, and lemony tastes all backed by just a touch of malt sweetness. This beer goes down very smooth. Good carbonation, medium bodied feel. Overall this beer is pretty stunning. Crazy amount of hop flavor in this one keeping you coming back for more.
