The bubbles sounded like those from a soda being poured from a can.

The head quickly settled to a fine, lacy cap.

The nose was full of that wonderful Citra with subtle roasted pine nuts and nutmeg.

The first sip proved Citra was in there with lots of sweet citrus and pine riding along a strong bitter backbone on this crisp pale beast.

Nearly clear, the pale Amber color is deceivingly inviting to the timid and shy but please be warned that THOU SHALL NOT PASS... A breathalyzer after consuming a .5 liter bottle.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.bottle dated four days ago.

A - nice pillows white head with good lacing atop a straw/brass clear body.

N - I poured this into the bottle then leaned back. I could smell the tropical fruits and pine from a yard away. Extremely fragrant and pleasant.

T - very tasty. Bitterness and pine resin. Citrus and tropical fruits (pineapple and mango).

M - kind of peppery, but not too badly. Not thick or heavy. Actually highly drinkable.

O - zounds this is a quality beverage. Super fresh and really enjoyable. Cheers.
