Intro: A 22 oz bomber with no visible bottled on date on the bottle. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a golden straw yellow colour with a three finger white head that had pretty good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong lime with a touch of grapefruit pith and lemons.
Taste: Like the aroma, tangy lime is at the forefront followed by some lemon, zest and grains.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was not bad but perhaps a bit too much lime such that it overpowers everything else.
