After my last experience with Triumph (aka: the trainwreck that is honey wheat), I was very reluctant to try a brew that had not been reviewed. Glad I did, though.

A - Nice foamy head (not fizzy). 2 fingers quickly down to one, then it hangs around for a while. Perfect lacing. There is a fair amount of chill haze, but not so much as to be inappropriate for the style.

S - Definitely getting the characteristic fruity/grapefruit aroma of Cascade/Amarillo hops. A caramel malt base is right there underneath. Not really inspiring by any measure, but not bad.

T - Nice and smooth, with a bitter bite. Citric fruitiness from the hops. Nice malt backbone -- crystal + 2 row, perhaps? Alcohol is present, but not to the point of being off-putting. Pleasantly warming, so I assume this one has a fairly accommodating ABV (don't know what it is off the top of my head).

M - Just about perfect. Maybe it could be a weeee bit lighter, but that's ultra nit-picking.

D - Good drinkability. I wouldn't have more than a few, but still quite drinkable.

This is a really good brew, bordering on great. The alcohol is a little bit too present in the taste (just a little), and the mouth feel is just a little too heavy (again, just a little), but these things ultimately don't detract. Will go out of my way to get this again.
