This beer pours a clear copper color with a one-finger white sudsy head.
The aroma was dominated by piney hops notes with a fair amount of grapefruit to boot, all backed up by the smell of sweet malt.
Taste up front is piney hops and a huge burst of citrusy goodness. Sweet, bready malt quickly follows and it all ends with a generous wash of bitterness and a slight funk like the earthiness of fresh hops. Mango makes an appearance in the second mouthful and persists through the rest of the bottle. Apricots in the aftertaste.
Moderate carbonation puts the considerable bitterness to work scrubbing my palate. This is a very drinkable beer and I would be happy to have it again. And again.
