The last of my southsound gathering notes.

A Pours a nice reddish amber color that had a pretty good head on it.

S Lots of a grapefruit like citrus. Still pretty strong despite being a few years old.

T Lots of citrus hops still present with a good bit of grapefruit like bitterness.

M medium body with good carbonation.

Overall this was an excellent beer despite being past it's prime. It would have been amazing to have had some fresh.

From South Sound tasting notes:

Poured a very dark amber with a small tannish head. Despite being several years old, this still had a pretty big pine/grapefruit hop aroma mixed with some toffee.

Moderate carbonation and a creamy, not-too-heavy mouthfeel. Plenty of grapefruit up front mixed with biscuity toffee, slight roast, and a lingering pine finish.

Never had it fresh, but this was drinking pretty darn well even after a few years.
