A: slight haze; golden colored; a steady stream of bubbles; 2 finger off white head that receded to a thick cap; OK lacing;

S: pineapple with a hint of pine in the background;

T: a combination of pineapple and pine all the way; grapefruit rind bitterness comes in at mid-palate and ratchets up at the finish;

Great creamy head, very good lacing, aggressive, hop bitterness. I've not had that many brews that use Galaxy hops, but I think I'm now a fan. Very nice example of the style; not overtly boozy on the palate, but a zesty, joyful, worthwhile beverage. And great value for money! Try it ....you'll like it.
