Clear, highly charged, light peach to amber in color, with a fine layer of creamy white froth.
Citric nose, grapefruit, apricot, lemon rind, orange zest...nicely bitter, slightly floral.
Taste: just enough bitterness to make this almost qualify as an IPA, but it lessens on the tongue after the first sip.
Pale fruity flavors are at play most of all, but the bitter hops are dominant. Not much malt felt. I went with the stylistic designation from the Pittsburgh entry, but this teeters closer to an IPA, but the smoother, easy-drinking British style (not enough crisp caramel malt to be an ESB), not the bristlingly hoppy American style. The lightness is alcohol and body don’t match up against the downtown Minneapolis "bitter cold" (try the Fallen Angel Belgian-style or the Berserk malt liquor for that, unfortunately, the Imperial Stout is gone already), but it’s a passable treat.
