4.25/5  rDev -8.6%

Poured fresh, only 3 weeks old.
A: medium golden color, with an off white head.
S: some citrus more orange than grapefruit, but stronger pine resin and grassy/herbal notes.
T: citrus/orange at the front, followed by grassy/herbal flavors and then a surprisingly bitter finish. The malt backbone leans towards caramel and lightly roasted flavors and isn't overwhelmed by the hops.
O: this is an outstanding beer, but I don't think it is what it was many years ago compared to the competition. Others have caught up and surpassed it.
