Pours a brilliant golden light copper with a frothy half inch cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving sheets of lacing.
Aroma is evident as soon as the bottle is opened, with resiny and piney hops jumping to the forefront. Catty and dank notes mingle with grapefruit and lightly sweet caramel malt, adding complexity. Onion surfaces as it warms.
Flavor is fairly tart initially, with grapefruit and orange underlying bready, toasted caramel malt that dominates mid palate. The finish is lightly bitter. Tropical mango and grassy resin become evident, along with perfumey notes.
Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and a bit of hop astringency. Crisp at the finish.
Aroma is very nice, with assertive, complex flavoring hops and a light malt backbone. Flavor falls a bit short, offering less complexity and a lack of bitterness for the style, which is ok by me.
