Expected a lite more aroma for the style but it sill gives a nice nose. Taste well, bitter but not to harsh on hops with a well ballanced medium to full body.

Cybercat (5054) - Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Pours bubbly golden with a thick buff head. Aroma delivers resiny hop and citrus notes, not strong but demanding a taste. Flavor tugs resiny and somewhat bitter hops, grapefruit, orange, and fresh malt notes across the palate - definitely enjoyable! Mouthfeel features firm body and lively if not strong fizz. Tug one home!
