Appearance - light orange yellow color. any head that formed quickly left

Smell - Sweet Citrus flavor for sure. Lots and lots of grapefruit. As this warmed up I got much more malty balance

Taste - Wow what a lovely balance of grapefruit and malts

Mouthfeel - very very smooth and easy to drink

Overall - Sure glad I got one of these in a trade. Would drink again any time

A-EBF sample pour. Orange color with a thick, white, frothy head. Big head especially for the size of the pour.

S-Hoppiness reminds me of resin and pine. This one also gives off that oniony aroma as well, I wonder what hops they are using here. Not to be outdone, the citrusy hoppiness is pretty formidable as well.

T-Flavor really jumps with grassiness. Some herbal and green onion hops as well. The citrus is more impressive in the flavor. The malt isn't super full and I have no problem with that. It lends just enough generic sweetness to make the hoppiness more palatable.

M-Crisp and bubbly. Medium bodied. High bitterness. Resinous.

O/D-A tasty hop-bomb with some interesting hop-derived aromas and flavors. I would have no problem taking back a few pints of this.
