HopfenWeisse (989) - - JUN 25, 2014
Batch 622. Not that fresh bottle. Hazy yellow color with big head. Aroma is strong grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, bitter, malt. Highly drinkable.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Bright tropical fruit and citrus fruit aromas pervade this super drinkable Session IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A cushy head of foam sits atop the clear straw blond.
-Hops are more aromatic than bitter.
-Delicate herbal notes accompany the fruitiness.
-Flavor rendering is clean and well defined.

Bottle.
