Pours a clear, bright golden body with a great, sticky two-finger white head that leaves great lacing.

Aroma of citrus hops can be smelled while pouring the beer. Floral and sweet. Aromas of oranges and just the slightest bit of grapefruit.

Orangey citrus hops dominate with a slightly sweet malt backbone. Not a grapefruit bomb by any means. Just a hint of it in there for bitterness. Strong bitterness without being overpowering - thank you sweet malt and alcohol. Alcohol is well hidden.

Really drinkable and very tasty. Reminds me a good bit of Nugget Nectar in the way that it is hoppy and bitter while being balanced nightly with malt sweetness.

A: Golden color. Large white fluffy head. Good retention with great lacing.

S: Hops. Citrus hops. Tropical hops. Some floral and grassy notes. Lemon
and other citrus. Juicy. Light malt aroma comes in towards the back end.

T/M: Tastes almost exactly like the aroma. Bitter. Plenty of citrus and tropical
hops and flavors. A little dry. Just enough malt sweetness to even the beer
out. The aftertaste has a citrusy finish. Medium bodied.

O: Outstanding. Close to world class. The hop taste is amazing and the
drinkability is dangerously good.
