Pale golden color gave way to a thick billowing head that lasted for quite a while and laced well.
Tremendously fragrant the scent can be caught from as far as three feet from the snifter. Huge citrus notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerines and dare I say watermelon.
The flavor does not hold the fruitiness of the scent nearly as well but a more balanced citrus, malt and piney hop flavor comes out on the tongue. The flavors are strong but never overpowering the other. This balance lends to feel as a very smooth, light and crisp feel causes the ale to drink dangerously easy. 7 ABV will not hurt you as bad but it reminds you that this is not a DIPA, yet so much fragrance and flavor comes from a littler package.
