Poured into tulip

A Golden amber, transparent. Pencil thin lacing. No head. Slight bubbles/carbonation.

S Has a nice grassy and fruity aroma. Can smell the dank wet hops as well, although this is not too prevalent.

T Very dank. Pine resin. Orange and grapefruit peels with some lemon zest. Has a nice amount of hops in the flavor, nothing overpowering, but noticeable and enjoyable.

M Thin, crisp with some zest from carbonation. Smooth finish with a bitter aftertaste remaining.

O This is a pretty solid, if not outstanding, wet hop ale. Good blending of the flavors so nothing really overpowers anything else. Refreshing. I would have another.

Pours a dense, resiny, white head that has great persistence and leaves lacing all over. Warm, grapefruit/pine aroma. Radiantly clear gold with a touch of amber. Starts bitter with big hop notes of grapefruit, then a lull. A flash of metallic as the bitterness builds to a medium level. Citrus rind in the finish with the malt finally having a presence.

Overall, not bad. Nicely aromatic, hoppy, and bitter, no real malt presence. I would like it more if it was more aromatic or floral in the hops; lots of grapefruit and citrus rind if you like that profile, though.
