A - Pours a hazy golden/light amber color with a solid finger of cream colored head. Decent retention, a full layer remains across the surface about 5 minutes later. Very nice lacing.
S - Lots and lots of citrusy hops. Grapefruit, mango, and passion fruit. Slightly tart and bready. Citrus really dominates the nose.
T - Bitter, sweet, and citrusy. The hops have a nice resinous quality to them. Citrus is still very much present but is less aggressive in the taste. Dry and bitter initially; grapefruit, resin, and a mild but welcome alcohol burn take over through the finish which is mostly dry/bitter/alcohol.
M - Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation. Rather refreshing as I find most dry & hoppy beers
O - Very good, kind of one dimensional, but its a very good dimension.
