3/4" dense khaki head stands atop a brew of a deep golden colour, holding it's retention fantastically and leaving trails of lace on the way down. Clear cut aroma of oranges, lemon peel, grapefruit. Subtle pine and malt sweetness.

Decent flavours on this brew; a big punch of citrus from the star hop delivers lemon peel, oranges, lime, grapefruit, giving way to tropical fruits: pineapple, guava. Malt backbone delivers soft notes of cracker, bread, lemon candy, caramel.

An almost average brew with an almost perfect mouthfeel, they really nailed it here; light bodied and very juicy. Just a touch of dryness, but the citrus flavours that linger literally kept making my mouth water. Extremely smooth and clean. Light bitterness. All around a good showcasing on the citra hop. Cheers.
