A- Nice golden light amber color with 2+ fingers of white head that later died to less than 1 finger head and left great lacing all over my glass.
S- Wow heavy citrus hops, mostly freshly cut grapefruit, almost a little of mango/pineapple sweet malt flavors on the back end.
T- Really similar to the smell, heavy citrus hops especially grapefruit followed by some slight mango flavors and slight malt flavors. Definately more of a one sided hop bomb, Pliny is more balanced.
M- Nice carbonation, medium body and tons of citrusy hoppy flavors throughout.
D- Very easy to drink, almost easier than Pliny because it has less of a malt prescence. Very nice beer, less balanced but nice.

Poured a clear yellow. The head had great retention and left a decent lacing.
Aroma was very floral and a slight note of orange peel and grains of paradise.
Mouth feel was a little thin but the flavor is very bold. The flavor was piney, grassy with hints of black pepper and straw or hay.
This beer finishes very long and leaves a resin feel on the tongue, with notes of orange pith and kiwi rind.
Serving type: on-tap
