This beer turned out pretty good. For the fourth rendition of this beer I changed ALOT! Pretty crazy how this beer has evolved over the years. However, it is delicious none the less. Great beer that I'll definitely be brewing again!

Appearance: Straw/Golden Yellow, White fluffy head, large bubbles. Lacing lasts!

Aroma: Huge Grapefruit and Tangerine on the nose. A slight hint of floral notes towards the end.

Flavor: Malty, crisp flavor with a huge citrus bomb at the end of the palate.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied. Very quaffable.
