A gift from my sis-in-law who brought a bomber from San Fran to Nashville for Christmas (along w/ some Pliny too).

This one pours clear, light gold in color with a thick white bubbly head. Good lacing and retention with the head receding slowly. Smells like citrus and fruity hops, sweet grapefruit, fresh cut grass. The taste mirrors the smell with fruity citrus up front and finishes w/ grassy, earthy hops and lemon rind. The taste is a little weaker than I would have expected. The body is light and slightly watery, very little carbonation to speak of. I enjoy the flavor of this beer, just wish there was more of it. A little too thin in my opinion but still leaps and bounds better than most normal-strength IPA's out there. Glad I got to try it.

Pours a clear golden with one finger white head. Head slowly vanishes leaving little lacing on glass. Aroma big with citrus fruit, pine and slight grass notes. Flavor is more grass and citrus, with a touch of funk. Slight maltiness and packed with hops. Light and refreshing with medium bitter finish.
