Bright golden color to match its bright hop profile. Nice malt balance and floral, pine, citrus hops, tobacco on a smooth drinking mouthfeel.

Poured bottle into Lost Abbey Teku

A-Pours a beautiful clear golden color with a three finger white head. Great lacing.

S-Aromas of grapefruit and orange.

T-Very complex flavors with the Initial flavor of orange and grapefruit with a nice bitterness of the hops in the middle, and then sweetness of the malt.

M-Mouthfeel is well balanced with great carbonation.

O-This was one of my ISO after I had their IPA and they didn't disappoint me. I must try more of their brews especially speedway.
