Pours a brilliant clear gold with an inch-thick white head. Aroma is bright, juicy, sweet hops: a ton of grapefruit, white grape, mandarin orange. A sheet of lacing follows down the glass.
Taste is very close to the nose but with a light toasty malt base. Citrus of many varieties, floral notes, light resiny pine, even cantaloupe? Light lemony flavor amid a light bready pale malt. There's no trace of alcohol flavors or presence but you feel the warmth by the end of the glass. Finish is very bitter with some caramel sweetness hidden on the back of the throat.
Mouthfeel is light to medium, not quite thin but with a lager-like body. Drinkability is high, nearly quaffable if not for the hop bitterness. This is a fantastic showcase for the hops -- it is bright and exhuberant. It makes me happy.
