The aroma is sweet and citrusy with apple, grapefruit, and orange zest. There's a bit of fresh grass and a bready undertone. Clear, bright gold body with a frothy, off-white head that really sticks around. Smooth, clean malt up front, soon followed by moderately flavorful hops which are piney, flowery, spicy (not as citrusy as the aroma). There's a quick surge of bitterness. Grainy malt lingers in the finish. Smooth texture, medium body; considerable acidity from the hops, which with the subdued carbonation makes for a good bite.

Well balanced and drinkable—the hops are not overwhelmingly bitter, and the hop flavors are pleasant enough. There is considerable, though still backgrounded, grainy sweetness to round out the flavor.

White head that hangs around. Had out of a bottle. Great taste.
