S: Bright citrus, lemon peel, tangerine, slightly resiny.

L: Creamy white head that dissipates slightly. Solid lacing, golden yellow.

T: Hoppy, resiny up front with a clean, semi-sweet malt backbone. Medium resiny bitterness with a slight grainy maltiness, very light. Grapefruit peel dryness in the finish, with a fairly long finish on the palate.

M: Medium light body, fairly crisp. Medium carbonation.

Just delicious, light bodied, but quite hoppy brew. Love the hops in this, very bright and clean. Perfect for the summer.
