A gentle pour produces a tall foamy cream colored head atop a golden orange body. The foam has remarkable staying power and decorates the glass with billowing clouds of lace.

Fragrance is immediate as I pop the cap. Apricots, citrus, floral notes waft out and intensify on the pour. Lemon, lime, oranges. Pineapple and tropical fruits. My mouth is watering just smelling this beer.

Taste follows the nose. Intense citrus and tropical fruits with a dry and bitter finish. Fresh and minty. Piney. Oily. A little oniony. Malts are a mere platform here - a soapbox from which humulus lupus delivers its oratory. For all the intensity of flavor this beer is crisp, clean, dry, focused and so easy to drink.

A very good lunch indeed.
