Thanks to one of the finest BA's around, Retail1LO

A finely clouded, dark straw pour holds a finger of white foam fleetingly, ends with bubble islands and a nice ring.

Wonderful wafting aromas of orange and lemon zest, sweet grapefruit, neutral sweet, melon form a bouquet that is indescribably delicious and enticing.

All the flavors of the nose combine into a balanced whole that also features the lightest bit of herbal drying at the end. Stupid delicious, I wish I were a better reviewer and could let you read this and know just how fucking good this is.

Nicely low carb, easy drinking, light body but full of lasting flavors that make a superb finish.

Tired Hands, huh? In the words of no one in particular I shall give worthy advice: "Get yo ass some of this beer, y'all gone like it fo sho!" Highest recommendation.

Tall white head that fades to a fizz on top, lots of lacing. VERY pale body - looks like a light beer.
Nice clean citrus hop aroma, but fades to be pretty faint given time. Taste is overwhelmed by sharp acidity with some messy hops at the back end, lingering dry and bitter. The acidity is felt more than the carbonation, leaving it somewhat astringent.
Disappointing overall. Tastes and feels like an extra-hopped light beer. I guess at 4.8% it sort of is one, but I still wouldn't choose it over any readily available pale ales.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Hoppy aroma. Grapefruit coloured and lacey. A little yeast, surprisingly. A big smooth mouthfeel. Citrus,fruity, complex and subtle tastes, a good pale. I would like to have a six pack in my fridge. Perhaps the best on tap tonight.
