Pours a nice orange amber color with a big fluffy two finger off white head. Great retention and lacing. Aroma was floral and fruity, with some nice tropical notes and a nice hint of sweet biscuit in the background. The flavor had a lot of grapefruit and piney bitterness up front and a nice sweet malt backbone, very well balanced. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with nice carbonation. This beer is just solid in every way- including the price and availability. One of my standards, always either in the kegerator or a twelve in the fridge.
