Pours a light, golden color with thick white head that does not dissipate.
Smells of fruity hop and subtle malt
Tastes of hop....fruity (tropical fruit notes), tangy, slightly bitter, sweet...grapefruit in the back.
Mouthfeel is great, silky smooth.
I was expecting to be knocked out by this beer, but it is subtle and really makes its point on the smooth, fruity hop flavor that lingers on the palate longer than you would want most other beers.
Edit: Two more bottles later and drinking other, comparable beers, this really is worth the hype. The oily finish is simply like no other.
Serving type: bottle
