shoestring (310) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Lovely refreshing citrus. Pale yellow with nice head . Maybe served little too warm as impatient. Just before being sickly or overpowering with the grapefruit it pulls back with the hops. Another winner from fyne

suprchunk (2672) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Very pale straw colored pour. Almost like a wit in color. Small white head that is quick to fade and leaves behind a bit of lacing. Not much, but some. Big florally hop aroma. Slight citrus nose. Bitter hoppy taste. Dry. Pleasant hop aftertaste. Nice beer.
