(12oz bottle) Small white head atop a clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, peach, floral. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit/orange, grassy, light peach, floral, pine. Despite all these hop characteristic flavors, this isn’t especially bitter -- its bitterness is comparable to a middle-of-the-road West coast APA. Light-medium body, some crispness.
