Could be a bit more brilliant in color. Light orange, closing in on dark yellow.
Resinous pine aroma overtakes a forward pungent grapefruit. Excellent. The stuff of dreams.
Front flavor matches the aroma. A huge burst of resinous hops balances to nice smooth grapefruit. The finality is a bitterness that is a bit too resiny and full. Could use a bit more balance, which explains the light color.
Fills the mouth, but not cloying. Lingers, but doesn't ruin.
Excellent beer from an excellent brewery. It's fair to say that DB is the best, if not the most exciting brewery in VA.
