Mix a six pickup. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours bright orange amber with a light layer of foam on top. See through. Modest grapefruit nose, malt too. Lighter side. Light hop, thin malt. Citrus embedded. Grapefruit peers through. Very mild, but still good.

A: Poured from a 12oz. bottle into an Opa Opa IPA holiday pint glass (beer and glass were both Christmas gifts!) Mostly clear, with a pale-straw coloring, a thin white head with a slight froth left on the glass. A touch of haze and effervescence.

S: Bready, with a slight hop finish. Some banana, a little wheat germ, and grass all appear on the nose.

T: This beer has a stronger look than one might outwardly judge. A good malt-forward character, with a hop finish that focuses more on dryness than on flavor. Some notes of metal, booze, raisins, whole grains, rye, and citrus rind appear in the character of the beer. Bitter and bready are the words I would describe this beer.

M: Watery and metallic, this has a tinny, hollow feel to it overall. It does expand a bit in the mouth, but the fore and back are empty. Middling at best.

O: Not a bad beer, and certainly not one I'd turn down if offered, however I wouldn't go out of my way to get one. A perfectly serviceable IPA.

Pours a fairly clear medium golden color with a huge meringue head that prevented me from pouring this in one shot. Smells of citrus and a hint of pine. Heavy on the grapefruit and lemon with a fairly solid bready sweet malt backbone. The flavor follows the aroma bread citrus and pine with a faint hint of wild yeasty phenols. Medium body with a huge amount of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, nothing special, but nothing objectionable either.
