Shiny golden pour, just a bit hazy. Small white head reduced to a bit of froth in minutes.
Sweet citrus and caramel on the nose, peach, faint melon, bit of mango, light pine. Sweet and really fruity.
Bitter-sweet citrus up front, lots of grapefruit and citrus peel, bit of lime, pineapple juice, touch of mango, maracuja. Spicy leafiness, kiwi seeds. Not the most complex fruity hops, but really intense and strong, tailor made to cover up the caramel malts (just a bit coming through) without missing out on the flavor-enhancing sweetness (nice hint of floral honey, actually). Pine and grassy bitter steam-roller in the end.
Lots of flavorful hops in the aftertaste, a bit tropical, citrus peel, a bit of pine, with hop bitterness stuck in the throat. Medium body, rather fizzy, almost a bit burpy.
Refreshing and so very tasty. Can't imagine how this is fresh from the tap. Great IPA.
