Poured a bright amber with a one finger pure white head that dissipated quickly. Light lacing is present. Floral and citrus aroma. Taste is sweet and crisp with a pronounced grapefruit rind hoppiness on the end, which was a little too bitter for me. Well carbonated and medium light body.

Poured from a bottle into a tall glass. A bright clear yellow color with a nice white head and lacing. The smell is clean, sweet and citrusy. The taste has lime and lemon notes with a touch of hoppy bitterness. A nice summer beer.

Not bad....a little too much hop and grapefruit for me but not overpowering.

See through yellow look to this beer. Ok, sort of a take on the scent of a European pale with a malt scent highlighted by some floral hops. Ok, What I like about the flavor is that it adds more citrus and still has the floral bite similar to its euro brethren. Really carbonated and thin beer. Actually good stuff with some lasting bitterness.
