Beer pours a hazy yellow color with a nice 1 finger head. That lasts several minutes decent lacing left in glass. Smell is if bitter orange and grapefruit with heavy spice notes of coriander. Taste is somewhat bready with nice grapefruit and bitter orange notes; a really pronounced coriander presence is tasted. Carbonation was spot on.

A really nice offering, I love the accent on the coriander/spice end of the beer rather than the ordinary zest/bitter orange end of the style.
