Logged from notes circa 7/22/2012

Appearance: Golden yellow straw, pale reflected sunlight haze with a small white head.

Aroma: Subdued grass, slight lingering citrus notes of orange, grapefruit, and pineapple

Taste: Initial bitter pine followed by the citrus. I notice the presence of chinook and certainly citra hops in leading roles. Luscious and juicy with a finish like taking a bite from a ripe tangerine. The ABV is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: Balanced and well carbonated. However, it taste fragil, as if this beer could not stay cohesive in the long run.
