Looks like an ideal beer. Not as sweet as Racer 5. More hoppy, bitter finish but Racer 5 is my favorite.

I had this on tap at Federal Taphouse, served chilled in a tulip.

The color is resplendent golden with good clarity and thick white head with tight bead and thick lacing. The smell has a deep citrus and tropical nose w/ mix of pineapple and grapefruit in the aroma w/ light herbal smell. The feel is tangy and juicy with clean hop bitterness, moderate carbonation with dry finish and mild alcohol.

The taste has a crisp citrus and tangy juicy tropical character with fruity yeast and mild malt body with herbal hop flavors dominating the flavor has a light astringency with a slight golden grapefruit element with mild lemony zest taste. Overall A great wet hop beer, very fresh with a not raw bitter character as an unfiltered but has some great hop flavor with great balanced taste that leaves you wanting more it is fresh and enjoyable- maybe one of the top 5 beers I have had that are called 'Wet hopped'
