12oz bottle poured into a tulip.
A - Pours a light amber, fairly cloudy as well but with no sediment. About 2 fingers worth of ivory head forms quickly, composed of small, soapy bubbles. Nice retention as well, finally ending with a thin film of foam acting as lacing.
S - The nose is full of citrus fruits, especially grapefruit. A bit of malt and alcohol, and it actually has a somewhat skunky note in the finish.
T - The taste is similar to that of the nose, where the main focus of this is the grapefruit, but there is a good amount of pine as well. Slightly less malty here and it takes on a more hop-forward phase. Some bitterness in the finish, with a touch of alcohol and skunk? once more.
M - Mouthfeel is moderately heavy-bodied with decent carbonation. Feels good on the palate and moves easily. Definitely get the hop stickiness that weighs on the tongue which is nice.
D/O - Drinkability is moderate. An easy-drinking beer for the most part, but it just seems to come across as a bit one-dimensional. There's grapefruit and a bit of pine, but that's pretty much it. The bitterness and alcohol saps the finish away, so the aftertaste is just bitter citrus. I guess this is the Fall version so there are 3 others left to try...

The best thing about this beer was opening the bottle. The worst thing about this beer was drinking it.
In the aroma, there was plenty of fresh smelling hops floating out of the bottle. As I poured I noticed a considerable amount of sediment as the pour finished.
The taste was stale and old tasting and lacking those hops that I scented upon first opening.
No date on the bottle that i seen so age is unknown.
What a letdown.
