Just tried this and I was surprised how good it was. Poured from bottle into glass, nice color clear good lacing.

The aroma was outstanding, nice citrus grapefruit with the piney hop right in the middle.

The taste was even better citrus/tangy with a slight bitter finish but very well balanced. Extremely refreshing it was great with my meal. i will definitely be getting more of these.
Was reminded of a Lagunitas IPA.

Cheers

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
