The color is orangish, it's a little hazy and has a lot of carbonation. The head was one finger and white and didn't stick around for very long.
The hops smelled mostly of grapefruit. I also picked up some floral notes and some grassy notes as the beer got warmer. There was a lot going on with the aromas and was quite pleasant.
The grapefruit flavor in this beer is big and heavy. There is a nice caramel malt back up to balance the hops very nicely.
The body is medium to full. I get a crispness from the carbonation which comes right before the resinous hop punch. The malts follow the hops quite nicely. There is an after taste but doesn't linger because of the balance between hops and malts.
This is one of my favorite beers. The hops smell great and deliver bold flavors. The malts create a subtle aftertaste making this one very balanced beer.
