The color is a deep, clear copper. A light, soft, big-bubbled off-white head forms on top, reaches 3/4 of a finger, lasts a short time, fades to sturdy foam, and leaves spotty lacing.
It's moderately hoppy, though pretty light overall. Citrus flesh and zest sneak out with a light malty sweetness balancing. It's tough to get a whole lot out of, though.
The flavor is a bit stronger, with both hops bitterness and malts sweetness somewhat more assertive. Balance is well-maintained. Grapefruit and orange mingle with a floral sort of note, and it's pretty leafy, but it develops an odd sourness into the finish. Overall, though, it's not bad.
It's a little thin in the body with some spritzy carbonation, which just needs a little time and evens out. It's not too bad, and pretty smooth, though the crispness does eventually fall off.
