Pours a light golden orange. Big white frothy foam head.
Smells overwhelmingly of bittering, pungent, almost floral/overwhelming grapefruit rind with a smidgen of generalized citrus and a hint of pine.
Taste is a blistering assault of pure grapefruit rind ... really no lush tropical or fruit flavors to found, just straight-forward bitter citrus with some pine. No malt content, at all. Kind of disappointed in that, as this beer needs some balance. If you're going to be this hop forward, at least a bit of complexity to the hops would be nice.
Serving type: on-tap
