Sharp melon and bitter citrus. Drinks slightly off, so possible bad can, although with a vibe that I would not have been a big fan anyhow.

After reading the description, I’m wondering if this is a bad can. I don’t get any citrus or pine. Just seems bland and off. I’ll rate again.

Intense bright citrus and passion fruit, grapefruit dominates. Hoppy and sweet but a bitter citrus punch.
