From notes on 03/10/12:
On-tap at the brewery/restaurant; Poured in a pint glass.

A - Came with a thin layer of off-white head that disappears quickly; Light caramel in color with a cloudy appearance; Leaves pretty good rings of lacing behind

S - Good amount of grapefruit present that's a bit tart, as well as some tropical fruits and a light yeasty and spicy aroma

T - There's plenty of tart grapefruit in the taste, just like the nose; Caramel tasting malts provide the backbone of the flavor with just a light spice coming through as well; Just a bit of bitterness is felt throughout the taste

M - Medium bodied; Good amount of carbonation; Finish is a touch dry

O - Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew from Blue Mountain that brings quite a bit of grapefruit punch. The thing I liked most about this beer is the fact that the hops were harvested by local volunteers to make a truly unique creation. As for the flavor, the grapefruit tartness seemed fairly strong, but not to the point where it was overwhelming. I could drink this brew again, but I'd probably opt for other Blue Mountain offerings if given the choice.
