On tap at The ABQ Brewpub.

In a pint glass, the beer was gold in color with a thick white head that left a good deal of lace.

Mostly citrus aroma, a little bit of sweet malt.

Grapefruit taste, a little biscuity.

Very hop-forward, but not too aggressive.

I enjoyed it a lot.

We found this beer in Ruidoso, NM and the owner of the bar told us that it just came out and only available on kegs currently. You can smell the hoppiness of it immediately. The beer Is slightly opaque and golden in color. Slight head when it came out. The taste is quite good, it actually surprised us that it was as good as it was. Strong hoppiness flavor and goes down smoothly. I will definitely go to this beer if I see it again in NM.
