Had this on draft at Bukowswki's last night (it was expensive @ $7 !)
Appeared a nice amber/red colour in glass. Very nice, tight white head, about an inch's worth, and long lasting lacing down the glass.
Serving temp was nice - a little on the warm side, perhaps 48-50 degrees. This worked well for the beer.
Some hop aromatics, and some maltiness evident, but not in a heavy way - if that makes any sense.
Flavour was more of the same, a definite malt presence, yet light on the palette....almost watery! But with a sublte malt chewiness remniscent of west coast pale ales I am accustomed to. Balancing hop bitterness and noticable aromatics, as well.
A Very drinkable session brew, but somewhat lacking in depth or complexity.
Serving type: on-tap

3.76/5 rDev -3.6%

Amber color with apparent carbonation with a full three fingers head with great retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Citrusy aroma with predominant notes of caramel and grapefruit.
Flavor of American yeast, tea leaves, oranges, grapefruit, mild spices, lemongrass, and caramel and slightly toasted malts. Becomes more lemony with time. And it feels bitterer than its 42 IBUs. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting but friendly bitterness.
Light body with low carbonation.
Interesting that it has a medium bitterness that does not goes away and both malt and hops are melted together. Though it felt a bit too thin, but this makes it very sessionable.
Serving type: bottle
