20th May 2016, 22oz bottle conditioned, shared with my son in California while on holiday. Pale, straw coloured with a white fading head. Citrus hop front, with a light malty base: expected a bit more hop bite and oomph to be honest, flavours more subtle than impaling.

22 Oz bottle poured. Pours a cloudy lemonade color with a full foam mousse head. Lemon citrus aroma that is said on like in a blind check. Flavor is lemon, grassy hops, dank, and a plastic finish. Fun beer that borders on style. Pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, lemon, grass), with notes of cat pee and detergent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Citrusy-grassy hops are brought down by unpleasant notes and grainy malt. Ok balance but a bit sour. Meh.

330ml bottle. A murky golden amber with a small but lasting white head. Resinous, piney hops with citrus pith and grapefruit. Some pale malt there but a little lacking in body to carry the hop load. Light to medium bodied, medium spritz and a long, hop-driven finish.

Not much malt and lots of Nelson Sauvin without bitterness.
