4.13/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

1-liter swingtop courtesy of AKSmokedPorter.

The pour is gorgeous. Somewhat hazy golden-(just-a-hint-of)-amber in color with an uber-thick and creamy white head that not only hung around forever, but damn near completely covered the entire glass with thick lace. Aromas are riddled with grapefruit...a lovely inidicator of things to come. Flavor is strongly dominated by citrusy and a dash of earthy-grassy hop bitterness. There's only token sweetness from the miniscule malt support here, but for a hophead like me, that's just fine. Finishes with a long-lasting, burp-inducing, gritty bitterness (not sweet...more of the grassy hoppy flavor) that reminds you of what's going on. Drinkable? The 1-liter was gone in about 90 mintues. Not a palate-shattering beer but certainly a fix for the hophead. I'd love to try this again.

Cheers to AKSP for providing me with a chance to try this bad boy.

Serving type: growler
