A: deep hazy gold body; head as big-as-ya-want-it of ivory foam; ample lacing down the glass
S: bursts with Citra goodness: lots of orange, grapefruits, and bright flowers; some of the malt slips through, too, fresh and clean
T: completely impressed right off the very first sip - which was quickly followed by others - all the wonderful citric action continues, from bright notes of orange and lime over darker notes of grapefruit and citric pith; the malts are perfectly suited for the hops, keeping an stable under-structure of clean, fresh, pale grains that add just enough sweetness and body to "balance" out the beer.
M: drinks lighter than you'd expect - perhaps a medium body, the brisk carbonation becomes smooth and slick, with a dangerous drinkability that you'll have to be careful of - fortunately, not a killer abv - otherwise you'd be in trouble
O: whatta great beer - courtesy of j47paco - really crisp and fresh and tight - tons of delicious Citra action and a perfectly complementary malt backbone. Totally recommended.
