3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden pour with a white head. Big citrus aroma to this. Great grapefruit, tangerine, and orange. Some pine, a bit of sweet bread, and a nice tropical character. Mild bitterness to the flavor, semi-dry, and heavy on the grapefruit and tangerine. Nice pine, some tropical fruit, a bit of sweet malt, and floral hops. Really nicely done overall.
