750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden body. Big white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Nice grassy and grapefruit hoppiness. The lemon isn't really a lemony hop, more from the yeast and acidity.

Taste - Grassy here too, but lemon takes over. Really strong lemony flavor without being too tart. Some pale malt flavors come through in the back.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Light sourness. Medium body.

Overall - Refreshing and flavorful.

A-Cloudy orange, some carbonation and a one finger head.

S-Orange and lemon with other citrus notes. Some earthy hop notes.

T-Nice tart notes, some citrus, some hoppy notes and grapes as well.

M-Medium bodied, a nice tart finish, not much carbonation.

O-A good beer, but compared to the Apricot it pales in comparison.
