Hmm...I think my bottle was a bit light struck. It initially smelled skunky, but letting it air out helped tremendously. At any rate, pours a very cloudy, golden, straw yellow. A few bits of sediment suspended perfectly throughout. Huge, reactive head that resembled really airy whip cream. Some parts of the head stuck to my snifter and never dissipated. Now, Americans should not get their hopes up, because this isn't anything like an American IPA. However, you can pick up the grapefruity scent and flavor of the hops. It smells like a tropical smoothie with light booze. It tastes exactly how I thought it would...yeasty, citrusy, with a sweet malt background. Medium to medium full body that is perfectly smooth. Great beer.
