Tasting notes

Hazy Orange, mild carbonation. Hop Character is big on the front, smooths out as it goes through. Malt character is over balanced through the dry hopping. Tastes of grapefruit and straight hop backbone. We will update this one in two weeks, as we feel it needs more time in the bottle.
