Pours into an imperial nonic a slightly chill hazed orange infused light golden with a thinner wispy white head atop,some nice little chunks swirling.Citric and slightly grassy in the nose,I get some lightly sweet biscuit malts coming thru as it warms.As others have noted white grape flavors play a big role here along with some tangerine and a hint of resin sharpness over top of a sweetish but firm malt base.It's a little rough around the edges but not a bad beer,it's different in a good way.

A: Pours a relatively clear medium golden orange in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate pale golden yellow + burnt orange + copper colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a medium sized patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to heavy amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of floral + juicy tropical/pineapple, white grape, and tropical/pineapple hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of floral + juicy tropical/pineapple, white grape, and tropical/pineapple hops which imparts a light amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving lingering tropical + floral hops flavors.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront with a light to moderate amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasant amount of dryness in the finish. Enjoyable and does a nice job of highlighting the Hallertau Blanc hop.

Appearance - Pours slightly cloudy orange color with dense white head that settles to a rocky cap. Lost of spotty lacing.

Aroma - Really floral aroma, lemon, pretty grassy, light pine and citrus peel and orange.

Taste - Lots of floral flavors, bitter citrus peel, orange, mild lemon, really grassy and bitter flavors.

Feel - Medium bodied good carbonation really dry finish.

Overall - Maybe one of my least favorite R and R series really floral and bitter and dry which from what I read is usual for this hop.
