I'm enjoying this from a bottle. Poured into a tulip glass.
Looks like a rich pale ale. It's golden dark, with a 2 finger foam head. Nothing much, i guess.

Smells of nice grapefruit, lemons, freshly cut grass and a bit of mango.

After the first sip, i could say I'm pretty sure that this could be a nice session beer. No alcohol, just waves of good quality malts and a dry hop finish. Creamy palate, fuzzy mouthfeel. Simple and complex in the same time.

It's not out of control, but a very very nice effort all the way.

Nice flavor. Crisp, clean hop finish.
