Had two of these at the Bahama Breeze in Tampa. Served in a chilled pint glass, probably affected the head a bit. Nice bright, hazy orange color with an average size white head and average retention. Good solid bands of lacing.
Aroma is mostly citrus hops....not just a blast of grapefruit...there is some sweet tangerine and mango here as well. Some balancing maltiness...bready but with a hint of caramel.
Flavor is more of the same. The hops rule but this is not a one dimensional beer. The bitterness level builds up on you...not just a bitter head shrinker. The maltiness is just right.
Mouthfeel is rich and crisp. Bitterness is just right. A very well made brew.
I would be up for one of these just about any time. Wish I could get this beer at home.
Serving type: on-tap
