Pours a golden straw color, mostly clear with lazy bubbles floating throughout. Has a foamy cream colored head with very nice lacing on the glass that settles to a persistent thin film.
Has a strong grassy/pine hop aroma with a some grapefruit. There's also some toasted malt with a subtle sweetness underneath. The mix of strong hops and subtle malt give it a little candy like quality.
Much like the aroma, it has a strong woody/pine flavor with some grapefruit and other light citrus flavors - mostly lemon. It's also fairly peppery. Under that are layers of toasted malt. It's very bitter but not harsh and the hop flavor really comes through. The alcohol is hidden very well.
It's medium to full bodied with prickly carbonation, some oiliness. It's very dry, but not harsh.
I really enjoyed this beer. I found the hops very flavorful and not overwhelmed by bitterness. The malt stayed in the background where it should go, but was present in every sip nonetheless.
