  • Pours clear with a huge, frothy, large bubbled, slightly off-white foam. Retention is outstanding with lacing beginning quickly: juicy, sticky, yet wispy.

    Aroma is citrus and pine hops with Belgian yeast. A sweet malt backbone is there but is subtle.

    Taste is sweet at first, giving way to hops and some spice. The hops are grapefruit and pine; grapefruit the prime. Spice is peppery, staying on the palate longer than the hops.

    Body is lighter than expected but the hop oils coat a touch. Crisp and refreshing on another ridiculously hot evening.

    A really nice blend of American hop and malt backbone with the Belgian yeast adding nice complexity. Make sure to be careful how fast you drink as it goes down easy. Enjoy!
