Pours out a coppery amber color with a sudsy white bubble top. Lacing is good. Lots and lots of light passes through.
Pine and citrus hops and a fresh earthy character. Orange-y with notes of grapefruit and lemon pith. Malts lean toward European, but the hops are American made. Good grain balance with very mild toastiness.
Crispy and bright, with lots of carbonation up-front, featuring minty citrus hops, tailing pine, and sturdy pale malt balancing out the backend. Almost spicy in the middle leading questions as to what the grain composition really is, because it almost has a gentle rye note. Absolutely solid pale.
Luscious mouthfeel with that good hop burn waiting for you in the finish. Complements the carbonation nicely, which wavers in and out, but shows signs of being really bushy-tailed.
