This is quite possibly the best beer ever created. Think of your favorite Belgian beer (I'm biased)mixed the taste of a real Jasmine tea straight from China town and you have this magical amalgamation of flavors. I mean no disrespect in any form whatsoever. I wish that I was exaggerating, but I'm not. Try it if you don't believe me. Every time that I have this beer, its oh god, and I'm not religious.

Amber gold with white head, slight haze. Smells like tropical fruit and citrus, a great showcase of Citra hops. Great taste from the hop bitterness, balanced malt base and slight spiciness (pepper, clove) of Belgian yeast. Typical light highly carbonated Belgian style, light in the mouth. Great mashup of beer ideas.

L - Medium amber-gold. Rather hazy. Medium tall, white head. Persistent.
S - Lots of grapefruity hops.
T - Something of an unusual sweet, spicy, funky flavor to go along with the prominent citrus hops.

Very solid citrus hooped beer without being over the top hopped or fruity. This beer tastes almost as good out of the bottle than the tap (excellent pour and even head). A great go to beer; keep a sixer in the beer fridge.
