From my tasting notes: It poured a deep gold with a solid white head that had good retention and lacing. The aroma was full of tropical fruits, floral hops and citrusy grapefruit notes. The initial taste was a huge grapefruit rind bitterness that deftly slid into a lingering floral hop bitterness and dry finish. The bready malt backbone helped hide alcohol that was undetectable. As the beer warmed the flavors became more intense and well balanced taking you through it’s robust hop flavor profile with every sip. A troublingly tasty and tippable brew despite it’s high ABV and bold hop flavors.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Soapy and golden. Good lacing.

Smell: Mild lemon. Surprisingly light, especially for a double.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Very refreshing lemon, grass, and lemongrass. Again, it's very light for the style with a clean, pilsener finish.

Overall: Could have fooled me it was a double.

Had a chance to try this while at the Churchkey for brunch.

A-Lovely deep orange with minimal head

S-Citrus, floral, grapefruit and oranges

T-Citrus, Grapefruit bomb

M-Med carbonation, very smooth

O-Can't help but compare this to OTWOA. A little brother maybe. Don't know. Very similar grapefruit bombs. I will definitely seek this beer out.
