Unexpected purchase via a recommendation from the local beer store owner.
A -- Clear, pale gold with a slow settling, off white head. Very little lace.
S -- Citrus esters, spiciness, bubblegum hints, even some vague, sweet malt in the end.
T -- Fruitiness up front that lingers into serious tart grapefruit character. Clove spiciness in the finish and aftertaste with the sour/tart of the grapefruit character lingering. There's a soft, bready malt character creating a nice backbone, but the sour/tartness is dominant.
M -- Body is medium light with a soft, smooth mouthfeel.
D -- Very nice to style for the teamwork of 3 small American breweries. There is a certain acidity that lasts through the flavor and body of this beer, but I'm not sure if it's hop or yeast born, maybe both. This could probably keep me from more than one, but I can see this being delicious on a very hot day.
