Put this one on your pancakes at IHOP. It's syrupy sweet with an overwhelming grapefruit flavor. There is a warm toasty flavor that is interesting. It's just so fruity I'm not sure when or how you would drink this stuff.
Seriously hot, alcoholic, and spicy on the tongue, lips, and palate. An equal opportunity over-the-top brew. Quite aromatic with citrus and some pine, a hint of turpentine. Quite attractive in the small nonic, however, with a crisp white head and lovely darkish amber color. It's an interesting off-kilter entry in the DIPA crowd, if that's your thing. Ow, it's just plain hot.
From the 22 oz bottle bought at Olive Tree in Ocean Beach. Still waiting for an epiphany for Lightning, and maybe some new brews. I don't see many recent reviews, and I almost never see Lightning beers on tap on their home turf.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, citrus, pine, and grassy hops with caramel and biscuit malts, and a bit of booze.
T - Starts off grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and some caramel malts. Through the middle, pine and grassy hops come through with more bitterness and a bit of biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit, pine, and grassy hops with resiny bitterness with some caramel malts and a touch of booze.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and lightly sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. Good hop profile with good bitterness throughout.
