Cloudy yellow, white head.

Tangerine, melon.

Absolutely pops, nothing subtle about it. Orange juice-esque and not even a tad dry. Was there a bittering hop in this beer? Better than any single hop galaxy or citra I've had, the combination is perfect. Guilty of being one note but still incredible.

Carbonation feels right.

Fuck. This beer in my glass in Portland. HOW? Flip top 750 opens with a hiss, nice frothy head, beautiful color, the perfect, I mean perfect haze, the orange, the amber, the lemon rind. Aroma is amazing citrus, some pine, some melon some stone fruit. The flavor, soft up front, ripe citrus, grapefruit, melon. Crisp and clean mouthfeel with just that bit of pucker holding on to remind you that this is incredible. One of the best things I have ever tasted.
