Pour is a standard semi-golden hue, moderate head. Aroma has grapefruit & other semi-bitter citrus, a little dry malt cardboard as well. Taste is traditional & well-done, fair amount of citra style hop flavors like apricot & mango but with bulky malt backbone. Bitter but nothing abrasive.

Nice color and outstanding nose on this beer. Strong Pineapple, citrus elements with a malt edge is what I get most. Good flavor with the elements from the scent along with some pine and slightly bitter grapefruit. Falls short of the nose slightly. Alcohol totally hidden. Decent carbonation and a coating mouthfeel with some lingering bitterness.
