12 oz bottle. Pours a clear yellowish amber. 2 finger bone white head. Decent retention. Not much lacing. Smell is a grapefruit bomb. Big grapefruity citrus, some orange, some tropicals. Awesome smell.

Taste follows the smell, but shows a bit more of the light malt base. Sugar Cookie malts, but very lightly. Great canvas for the hop character. Light medium bodied, with nice prickly carbonation. Works well. Extremely drinkable and doesn't even show a hint if the abv.

A - Super clean and translucent sparkly yellow with a white, finger head. The retention is fair, the lacing is subtle, but it's there. This looks appetizing.

S - Good lord, this reminds me of my grand's lemon tree in florida. The citrus characteristics are colossal, this smells freakin great. Smells of fresh squeezed lemon, a bit of lime, orange, mango and tangerine with a bit of fresh cut grass. To reiterate, this is an amazing bouquet of citrus with a hint of sweetness and biscuit/caramel in the background.

T - Opens with a lot of that lemon lime, though the nose is way more intensely citrus than the taste is. The middle begins to sweeten up, showcasing orange, tangerine and some honey or leftover sugar and a touch of pale malt. The malt profile is really subdued, I'm wishing there was a little more to it. But fuck it, let's concentrate on the hops because they're the star here. This finishes very light and clean, with hardly any bittering at all, some of that juicy lemon and grass lingers into the finish, super refreshing.

M - Body is medium and spot on, the carbonation is on the high side, but I'm enjoying it The carbonation feels like it's scrubbing my taste buds. A beer toothbrush, if you will.

D - So drinkable, so clean, so light. Nothing lingers, the flavors are vibrant and juicy, this is a joy to drink.
