Served hazy orange with a short white head. The nose brings a fresh ripe peach, squeezed lemon, floral and herbal hops, and a hint of cedar wood. Drinking it, there's a consistent level of sourness throughout that is high enough to be interesting and low enough to avoid Warhead territory. It has notes of granny smith apples, lemons, Tang powder, black pepper, and a real grapefruit juice taste. Not "kinda sorta reminds me of grapefruit" but like poking a hole in a grapefruit and drinking from it. There's a nice hint of cedar in the finish and again in the aftertaste. The beer has a medium mouthfeel with low carbonation, which is good because the sourness makes it prickly enough.
Serving type: on-tap

A-Semi cloudy orange, slight carbonation and a one finger head that lingers.
S-Grapefruit and Cedar. Lots of both. Some grass and very slight tartness. But mainly grapefruit and cedar.
T-Graprefruit. And Cedar. Lots of both. Starts with the grapefruit and ends with the cedar. more tart than sour.
M-Medium bodied, some carbonation, crisp almost dry finish.
O-Not really balanced as the cedar and grapefruit are in your face but good nonetheless. If it was a tad bit more sour the beer would be greatly improved.
