Pours a medium golden orange color with a slight haze and a frothy head that has serious staying power, leaving gorgeous sticky lacing behind when it finally falls. The bouquet is like a hop-bomb: The vibrant grapefruit-dominant citrus aromas are front and center with soft malt, green apple and floral notes playing supporting roles. Medium full in the mouth with solid citrus, grass, pear and pine flavors. The finish is dry with a lingering bitter twang. Excellent evidence that Americans aren't the only ones who can do hoppy.
