Super refreshing beer. Too me, this beer is like grapefruit in a bottle. Has the sharpness of an IPA with an exquisite sweetness that definitely lingers on the tongue. A great beer to sip on.

Thanks to GaryMuchow for this one. Poured from 12oz can into 10oz goblet. This very happy beer was a hazy orange-amber color underneath a massive 1-1/2-2 inch head. Pouring was done in multiple stages.

There was just a very light grain scent showing through in the aroma, as the scent was dominated by blasts of floral and citrus hops. Pretty much same song on the tongue, lots of citrus and floral hops, with only a bit of contrasting malt showing through.

The body was good, the typical medium-light found in so many of the style. Drinkability was good, I enjoyed my can a lot, and would certainly enjoy having this brew again. Overall, this is a nice, solid, enjoyable example of it's style. I wouldn't hesitate to have it again.
