Nice looking beer. Deep amber color, nice clarity, and two fingers of white head. The nose is minimal. Some citrus and malty sweetness. Taste has citrus, some tropical fruit, and a heavy malt body. Medium body, moderate-high carbonation. Lingering bitterness and slight lingering cloyingness.

L: Pours slightly hazed amber under a 2” cream colored foam collar that recedes to a thick, lacy film over 3 minutes. S. Has a grassy, herbal, minty nose with some biscuit. T: The attack starts with medium high maltiness with a big biter hop accent. The bitterness is crisp and more of a quinine bitterness with some earthy notes than a citrus bitterness. F: Medium body and soft, creamy carbonation with a little astringent hop bite on the finish. O: A hoppy beer with some rough edges but overall very easy to drink.

Definitely hoppy but not too much. Slightly sweet. Good overall.

It reminds me of DFH 90 minute, but not quite as good.
