This rare beauty came of the tap a but wide. Style calls for possible citric notes but I sense some wild yeast. Is that the intent or not? Nobody in my immediate crew knows since it's so rare. Time will tell. It doesn't taste right per the style.

It's QUITE tasty regardless.

A: The beer is hazy dark yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose - grapefruit seems to stand out in particular.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has some favors of grapefruit citrus and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a good Italian represention of an IPA that has some nice aromas and flavors of grapefruit bit isn't overly bitter.
