Yulesmith pours a hazy amber color with a frothy, slightly off white head on top. The foam dissolves slowly to a sheet in the beer, leaving behind sheets of lace on the side of the glass. The aroma is citrus hops with strong notes of grapefruit, pine and grass.
Each sip of this medium to full bodied beer is slightly chewy with a fizzy carbonation on the palate. The flavor is much like the aroma with lots of citrus grapefruit and pine hops. Balancing out the hops is a fair amount of sweet caramel and pale malt. Once gone the pine flavor of the hops lingers on the palate.
This beer has aged for a while in my cellar and still has quite a hoppy aroma and flavor. It's a bit off balance with all the hops, but overall a nice beer for hop lovers.

Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
