Pours a crystal-clear honey color, faintly amber in the center. A thick white head forms quickly, four fingers high, and will *not* fade. As it oh-so-slowly recedes into the beer, it leaves a thick webbing of lacing behind as it goes. No visible carbonation.
Smell is faintly of grapefruits and cedar, with a faint finish of honey.
Taste is bitter hops all the way. The honey and raisin flavors have just a fraction of a second to introduce themselves, and then are steamrolled by bittering hops. Grapefruits all the way here, with more bitter than flavor. Body is thin and slightly flat (oops, guess my pour was *too* aggressive). Finish is slighty acidic.
Very smooth and light, it would be easy to sit down and move through several of these, just sitting around on a hot day.
