Can shared with jamesy at the MBC Dinner release. Tried side-by-side with Heady, and they are definitely similar but noticeably different. Focal is significantly more citrusy, and the hop bitterness is more restrained. This is really fantastic -- complex, fruity, and a little resiny.

Can. Pours copper color with off white head. Nose and taste are cirtrus, melon. I was really surprised how dry this finished. Did a side-by-side with Heady. I liked Heady a little better. A little sweeter.
