Appearance is a straw yellow with two fingers of white head.
Aroma is pine, sticky with a balanced malt backbone.
Taste is balanced pine and malt. Some citrus.
Mouthfeel is medium with great carbonation and nice lingering bitterness.
I could drink 6 of these and be really happy.
Great beer

On tap at La Puerta in San Diego. Nice two-finger head, crisp light golden color. Grapefruity and piney hops blended with moderately strong malt. Grapefruit and floral notes on the nose. I just wish the smell didn't fade so quickly. Overall, a very good beer.
