Bought a 4-pack of pint cans. Drank from a pint glass.

Look: medium-dark golden color, somewhat transparent. Finger or two of white head that disappears quickly. A thin lacing is left after drinking.
Smell: citrus (mostly grapefruit), a little bit of piney/grassy hops. Smell is on the weak side.
Taste: after the initial burst of juicy grapefruit and orange, the hop flavor takes over. Strong aftertaste- malt, hops, and a little pine.
Feel: medium-heavy mouthfeel, medium carbonation

Overall: This is good. I'd buy it again, but it's not among my favorites.

L: Brilliant dark amber with chunks of yeast floating about. Supports a 3” finely bubbled clingy white foam cap that perches up over the rim of the glass. S: Very grassy hops, smells like fresh mowed grass T: A firm malt backbone supports an aggressive hop bill providing big citrus flavors especially grapefruit and a long lingering citrus rind bitterness. F: Medium to medium light body, medium high carbonation. O: Although the chunks are disconcerting, it is a decent beer.
