Nice delicious looking light amber, almost clear ( very lighty hazy), good head retention, lacing that zig-zag'd as I drank all the way to the bottom of the glass and stayed there.
Delicate grapefruit/floral bouquet. Maybe a little pine. Had to study this a bit to pick it up.
Tasting, the hops begin their magic, a hint of chamomile and grapefruit. Bitterness comes on strong but interestingly does not linger long as if beckoning another drink. Nice hop/alcohol balance.
Refreshing, tingly,carbonated/hop bite.
If not for the 6.9 ABV, I could indulge on this a while. After a couple of pints, thought I'd better ease up, had to drive. An excellent summertime refresher.
Serving type: on-tap
