Piney plus aroma. Not sure what the floral is.Hazy golden amber color with persistent lacing. Grapefruit fibre. Swishing thickens the texture. Very fresh. Bitter, astringent finish. Good IBUs. Puckers the mouth, lingers on the tongue. Itís underrated so far. So Iíll up the average. Itís worthy. And it goes well with salmon!
