Pours a clear amberish gold with some very interesting undertones of yellow and red. Lots of white in the thin and whispy head that dissipates in as moment and leaves thin streams of lacing behind.
Smells quite delicious lots of citrussy notes and some significant malt nose. Caramel and rye on a light note. Lots of grapefruit in the scent.
The citrus is even more prevalent in the taste, consisting of grapefruit and overrripe oranges with a touch of pine in the finish. The malts are very sweet, caramel and an extremely light touch of toffee.
The Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some very frothy carbonation and a dry finish.
Good drinkability with some heavy carbonation but not so overbearing on the pallete.
Tastes quite nice but finishes a bit full. Overall it is wonderful but heavy.yummmy.

While still better than the majority of mass-produces beer, this is a representation of the style I am not fond of. It's all hops with just a bit of malt sweetness before the hops take over.
Pine-y resins of hops comes through on the pour, with a pale wheat-straw colour giving up a decent-sized head that dissipated quickly, leaving very little lacing. The taste was as I described above - you get a malty sweetness on the tongue that quickly gives way to the 4 varieties of hops used in this brew. This BA cannot taste any hidden notes of fruits. Finish is very dry & bitter, and this lingers for quite a while on the palate. Mouthfeel is decent, a little thick & with good carbonation.
Overall, not a favourite of mine.
