3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the bierkoning. Hazy murky gold pour with lacy white head. Aroma is nice and citrusy, tons of grapefruit, light lemon, mango, pine. Taste is bitter, really potent hop juice, just the way I like it, lots of tropical fruits but a good dose of bitter pine resin as well to give some "body" to the hop flavor. Palate is med bodied with light-med carbonation. Delicious.
