Poured from a can obtained at the Alchemist truckload sale. Cloudy yellow/orange color with a creamy head that lingered to the end, with nice lacing. A big bouquet of fresh citrus, and truly original scent. Smooth with a bit of carbonation. Grapefruit, and pine, subdued malt and grain, and a nice bitter finish. Another home run from the Alchemist, which I would gladly stock in the fridge if readily available. Heady light? No way. Get it, try it.
