Appearance: Pours a hazy golden with a head of white lace.

Aroma: Tropical hops all over the place. Solid.

Taste: Bitter grapefruit, tropical, orange. There is a lingering bitterness or acidity here that’s a bit off-putting, and a slight warming at the finish. Solid, but not a favorite.

16oz can: this one pours a fairly opaque golden color. There was really no had or lacing to it. The aroma is good. Citrus, orange, resinous and other tropical hops. The taste is good. Similar flavors to the aroma, with some biscuit and sweetness. Nice!

Aroma is muted grapefruit, pine, resin, and biscuity malt. Fairly grassy.

Flavor is very pine dominant, with a grapefruit zest background and a solid, bready malt backbone.
