Pours a transparent golden amber with a nice frothy white head that kept around for the entire glass with good lacing. It smells delicious, with strong citrus notes, grapefruit, delicious hoppy joy. The taste was great as well. It's bitterness is extremely apparent and it slams you in the face with citrus goodness. The bitterness stays with you for some time, making the enjoyment of this beer a prolonged experience and a lot of enjoyment. Low carbonation and a decent body on this one.
