How about "murky straw" for a description of the look? Basically no head or lacing. Fortunately, I don't personally care about the appearance as long as it's not abnormal.

The smell has lots of citrus. I'd say the foremost is pineapple, but bit of orange and red grapefruit are also there. Intensity is light-moderate. A little powdered sugar.

The taste has far more pine. Freshly cut grass, too. Overall, it has a savory element (very notable for being one of the first things to stand out). The citrus is still present, but it's blended pretty well with the other flavors. There's an herbal element that I can't quite pin to any herb in particular. Bitterness is very light.

I already mentioned the savoriness, and that extends to the feel. Smooth carbonation. Vegetation aftertaste, although the bitterness increases.

Pours a turbid yellow slightly tinged with orange. Moderate to small amount of head retention and lacing. Aroma and flavor are of pineapple and orange creamsicle with hints of grapefruit, mango and peach. At 9.4% abv the alcohol is present but nicely subdued. I'm glad I didn't give up on Aslin IPAs after the first 5-6 I had were underwhelming because the last few I've had have been stellar.
