4.15/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Bottled 1/23/14 (about 3 weeks old).
A: Pours a clear gold. Tall, frothy and fizzy white head (maybe off-white). Good head retention but moderate sticky streaks of lacing.
S: Welp, grapefruit. Duh. Lots of of bitter, pungent grapefruit. Some spicy, resinous pine as well backs it up. No sign of malt. Duh.
T: Surprise, surprise, grapefruit. Followed by more grapefruit. Bitter, sharp, pungent grapefruit through and through. Grapefruit bombs everywhere. There is that spicy, resinous, dank pine that backs it up quite well. This spicy resin continues once the grapefruit has faded out, well into the finish and aftertaste. The aftertaste is spicy and bitter at the same time. Lots of super dry and bitter grapefruit peel but the spicy resinous dankness holds its own. No real noticeable malt anywhere but I'm sure it's hiding somewhere to help balance.
M: Medium-heavy, bitter and dry.
O: "Grapefruit slam" indeed. A nice highlight of grapefruit-y hops and actual grapefruit. Big, bold and bitter. Just enough accompanying hops to give it some backup and some complexity. Regardless, this is still a showcase of grapefruit and it executes it well.
