4.65/5 rDev +4%
On draft at City Beer Store in San Francisco
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a creamy white head that laces beautifully
S: Big pine and citrus hops, some lime and orange, nice malt sweetness behind it as well
T: Citrus hop glory, orange grapefruit lime lemon all in there, some tropical fruity notes as well, all nicely countered with malt sweetness, a little grapefruit bitterness on the finish but not overwhelming. A little alcohol comes out as it warms
M: medium body, almost creamy smooth, perfect amount of carbonation
O: Couldn't believe my luck when I saw this available. Lives up to it's reputation as an excellent brew

4.75/5 rDev +6.3%
A - Perfect orange color, nice sticky lace retention
S - White wine, delicious green apples, grapes, hint of grass on the end
T - Much of the same as the nose except you get a strong orange grapefruit flavor to start with a nice bitter bite on the finish
M - Medium feel medium carb, bitter on the palate
O - Nelson Sauvin hops are amazing. Super complex, as you get a lot of citrus, grapes and some grassy pine on the finish. This is excellent!
