Pours a clear, golden yellow color. White head doesn't have a lot of retention, dissipating fairly quickly and leaving some scattered lace and settling to a chunky film.
Smell is very hop forward. Not surprising from a CA beer. Citrus and piney hops are the primary players here, kicking all the other actors off stage except the malt and that barely makes a supporting presence. Balance? What balance?
Taste is very hoppy, still with the citrus and pine blend leading and a very minor role for the malt. A bit of alcohol creeps into the aftertaste. No real balance here, either.
A medium-full body and a solid effervescence work well together. There is a strong grapefruit aftertaste, a dry finish and a reasonably warming aspect. A good beer but not right for the style, too many things missing. I wish there was more to it than just hops, hops & hops.

A: light yellow. Clear. Thick-foamy head. Sticky lacing throughout drink.
T: citrus. Pine. Medium bitterness. Definite wheat in the malt profile. Alcohol is hidden well.
M: medium carbonation. Medium body. On the dry side.
O: good beer. Balanced well. Not too hoppy or malty.
