Light, golden amber color. Good one-finger white head. Good retention. Quite good lacing.

Very citrus dominated hops profile. Big grapefruit and orange zest, here. Great grassy presence. Smells fresh and new.

Pine and citrus bite dominate this one. Fresh, grassy flavor. Malt is hidden way down inside this one. Minimal sweetness on this one.

Crisp and clean mouthfeel. More waterey than I prefer, though.

Too hoppy for me to enjoy on a regular basis, but that's just personal taste preference. It's still an overall good hoppy brew.
