12oz bottle fresh from the brewery into a Captain Lawrence Tulip.
Pours and orange color with slight yellow tinge. Good cream color head which retains a thin layer on top. Average lacing for the style.
Smells of malt with touch of apricot happiness, carmel notes and juicy grapefruit.
Tastes of malt with ripe grapefruit followed by a pleasant bitter. Nice touch of tropical fruit balances with the malt. Good mouthfeel with light carbonation that fades away for a perfect sip that lets the malt and fruits mainly slight grapefruit bitterness linger on the palate.
Great Session beer.
In my opinion this compares to a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but is more fruity and less dry with less of that west coast bitter hop bite. More balanced with malt and and fruit.
