Received this beer from Mike, Thank you. The beer is 46 degrees and served in a pint glass. A gentle pour produced a monster three finger head with phenomenal retention. The head is airy, foamy, creamy, and billowy. The head left lacing on the glass as it slowly dissipated. The color of the beer is SRM four a pale straw color with golden hues. The clarity of the beer is hazy with carbonation bubbles.

A ripe fruity nose of citrus with pine, toasted crackers, honey, grass, a touch of earthiness, and yeast.
The flavors in the beer are a fruity hops profile (key lime, tropical, and grapefruit), honey, grass, a touch of earthiness, yeast, and grass.
The mouthfeel of the beer is crisp, fresh, clean, and slightly astringent.
The body of the beer is medium, the carbonation is medium, and the finish is full.
The beer has an excellent flavor profile and a strong malt backbone. The beer is beautiful in taste and looks.

COD 7/14/17. Slightly cloudy golden pour with just a touch of amber. World class head volume, lacing and retention.

Outstanding nose that implies citra and mosaic hops. Orange, tangerine, pineapple and a bit of zest make an impact over a slightly sweet bready base. Mango is more implied than detected. Mosaic provides a light pine background that fades into a light spicy spruce. A bit more aromatic intensity and this would become quite outstanding.

The body is medium and provides a nice slick texture. Near the end, it delivers hints of oiliness and a touch of creaminess that coats the tongue. The body / carbonation balance is outstanding. While not rollickingly effervescent, it provides enough for flavor separation and supports the slick mouthfeel. The finish is slightly prickly and finely bubbled.

The flavor profile is outstanding. Bitterness is mild for the style and is balanced in world class fashion with mid-palate sweetness. Over this sweetness, orange and pineapple emerge as the primary hop flavors. The beginning is a blend of hop flavor that is slightly tart and hints of tangerine zest. After the middle, pine and spruce softly emerge under the fading citric influences. The finish lingers and has just a hint of uncovered alcohol astringency. As the finish fades, zest becomes dominate.
