clear yellow, huge thick slightly yellow whiteish head.
very citrussy aroma, faint sweetness, oranges..
flavor is dry hoppy, grapefruit, sugar, pine, malty sweetness, yeasty bretty bitter note..huh?.
A very bitter hoppy beer, unfortuneately the bitterness seems to be a bit too floral and strange, and the sweetness is not as caramelly and malty as i would like it, is more sweet like if sugar was added. Strong hoppy brew for sure, but iíve had much better.
