Light amber appearance, reveals a nice amount of carbonation leading to the formation of 1/2" white head. Aroma had some lime notes. Not much else.

The bitterness is pronounced for something that doesn't feel like it was hopped all that much. I guess lime will do that, or a long boil of high alpha acid hops in small quantity. I mean, this is substantial bitterness above 60ibu I would guess, or maybe it is just lacking in the malt department making it feel so bitter.
