Reminiscent of my favorite year round Cigar City brew Jai Alai, the citrus especially grapefruit notes in the hops for notable for both the nose and taste. Very fresh flavor, and a beer for that would be well suited for those who are not hopheads. Certainly a good option for a session beer for those interested in that sort of thing.

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a soapy white head that left some nice webby lacing on the glass. 3.75

The aroma is of grapefruit hops. A bit chalky. There is a freshness to the hops. Perhaps some hints of tropical fruit. Quite nice for a APA. 4

The taste is of a juicy grapefruit hop. Bright hop flavor. There is a bit of chalk and tropical fruit. The malt is light but has a bready flavor. This is a fairly straight forward hoppy APA. Nothing complicated, just hoppy. 4

The feel is moderate with semi-soft carbonation. Good balance on the palate with a drying bitterness in the finish. Drinks quite well. 4.25

This is a very good APA. Ranks right up there with the best. At 5% this is a good day drinking beer. Good job. 4
