A: Pours a murky pale golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and moderate bright yellow + bright orange + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a handful of small patches of thin film surrounded by a large patch of very slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit + citrus/grapefruit pith + herbal + earthy hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + oat malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + oat malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit + citrus/grapefruit pith + herbal + earthy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away fairly quickly leaving lingering citrus/grapefruit + citrus/grapefruit pith hop flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with moderate amounts of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a very pleasantly soft/fluffy mouthfeel with a bit of initial crispness. Refreshing. Enjoyable with a more "classic" IPA hop presence. Definitely could have a couple of these.
