3.64/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Arrives in a liter mug, clear, bright, dark yellow with a creamy white head. Awesome lace, fabulous retention.
Smell is hops, malt, some grapefruit. Hops is strongest but not overpowering.
Taste is in line with the smell. Hops first followed by malt and a touch of wood. The same grapefruit note from the hops is here as well as a floral presence. Balance is good.
Medium plus body with a solid, tangy effervescence. Smoother than expected, and pleasantly so.

Serving type: on-tap
