Light yellow in color. Cloudy. Forms a moderate sized fluffy white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing. The aroma is more "dry" than "juicy," though there is a hint of juiciness to it. Aroma consists of citrus, orange, mandarin, grapefruit, with lesser notes of tropical fruit and mango. Taste is similar. This is drier beer. Mostly citrus and citrus pith with notes of orange and grapefruit. Maybe a touch of pineapple. Lighter boded. Medium carbonation. Crisp and dry. Moderate bitterness.
Nowhere near as good as it's bigger brother, but still a quality beer.
