Clean, pure grapefruit flavor. The standard orangey amber in the Mort Subite globe. Some coarse head, but not long lasting, though it renews with a couple of swirls. Big spritz in the mouth. The aroma is quite nice-- flowers and citrus.

Flavor is grapefruit marmalade. Sweet and bitter, sharp and tangy. A serious bitter edge, and quite hot and acidic. The malt seems to be so pale as to contribute little if any flavor. I don't think I've tasted a beer that is more clearly grapefruit scented and flavored. Supposed to be Australian Galaxy hops. Far out!

A really hoppy but pleasant brew. Your tongue will tingle, but the aromas will make you swoon. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

A: Pours a super clear amber with a two finger, white head.

S: Smells of fresh oranges hung like ornaments on a christmas tree.

T&M: Good strong bitterness up front mellowing out allowing some sweetness to come through. Not as dry as I like my IPAs to be. Better then average but far from the best. Slick medium weight mouthfeel.

O:A very nice west coast style IPA that I would gladly recommend to others and would enjoy drinking again.

Doin' it well and easy at the #1 joint - The Playground, in Downtown Santa Ana, CA.

Interesting to say the least. Hoppy like your grandmama after a few White Zins on her birthday, but the aftertaste is a bit subdued like Raul when he takes your granmama's codeine. Well and good, but a lil different - like that lil wiener no one wanted to play four square with in grammar Skool.

Raul recommend, but he's a lil perplexed.
