Poured from a bottle into a goblet, clarified light amber with light effervescence and a pretty much perfect billowy white head. I get a dank, floral whiff from about two feet away. Closer inspection after it cools off a bit is super-mango and tangerine - nice. There's still that sweet dankness and some grain to it, but it's pretty much overtaken by tropical fruit and citrus. The flavor is heavy grapefruit, but only a light bitterness on the back end. It's really just lightly sweet and juicy, but still leans toward a hop-forward IPA - the malt side being really downplayed, and to no detriment to it.
Overall, this is an awesome beer that is $10 and available in a six pack. I dig it.
