Poured a sunshine yellow with nice sticky lacing and a pillowy head.
Aroma was very nice. The closest fragrance I can think of to describe it was grapefruit marmalade. Also hints of pine and orange.
Flavors of pine, bitter grapefruit. Not much sweetness to balance the huge hoppiness. I would like it better if it were a bit more balanced.
Fairly light and dry mouthfeel, with the beer sticking to the top of the mouth and lingering for quite a while after swallowing.
Overall, this was a very good beer. I think I was a little disappointed, given the beers high ratings.
