Half liter brown bottle with a bottled on date.
The pour is perfection. Golden edges that meld into a faint honey orange center with a soft, cloud-like white cap. There is the slightest of haze in this beer. Nose is citrus, predominately grapefruit, pineapple, and some pine. A touch of alcohol is present, as well. Great balance of citrus hops and malt backbone on the palate. The hops present themselves up front then give way to bready malts. A welcome bitterness returns in the finish. Mouthfeel is silky smooth, punchy, and crisp all at once.
Worth all of the hype and wish I had access to more in South Florida. I don't know how they do it, but everything is in perfect balance from flavor-profile to mouthfeel.
