4.18/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From: Hyvee, Council Bluffs, IA
Date: "20417A3BR" stamped below UPC
Glass: Tulip

Pours a 2cm head of modestly dense foam composed of medium-sized bubbles. Head retention is solid, slowly decreasing to a persistent cap atop the body with excellent lacing. Body is golden colored with a slight orange tint, and rather hazy, though not totaly opaque. Light brings out bright golden yellow hues to the beer, and make the carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass easily visible.

Aroma is mildly citrus-like, with orange and grapefruit rind scents that are atop a base of slightly cracker-like malts. While I like the overall impression, I find that it could be stronger, particularly from a canned beer.

Flavor is brightly fruity and of mild grapefruit-meets-orange citrus, with more mild cracker-like malts and substantial bitterness. Front of palate detects pale malt sweetness and fruit-like esters, including some modest passion fruit, perhaps from the galaxy hops. Mid-palate is very bright and fruity, with plenty of citrus-like esters, particularly navel orange and grapefruit. Back of palate intensifies the citrus-like flavors, with a strong bitterness that lasts well into the aftertaste.

Beer is medium-bodied with medium-level carbonation, creating a crisp and modestly soft mouthfeel. Closes dryly, as one would expect with the substantial hop bitterness in the aftertaste.
