It's raining, it's pouring and it would be dampening my spirits if it weren't for all of the nice beers that my local, in-person trader, tone77 has dropped off for me! I inherited some horns, but they are not as big as eight-points, and I would prefer beer anyway.

My aggro pour got things going in a big way! I watched as the pseudo-cascade settled into three fingers of dense, eggshell-white head that slowly began to fall, leaving great lacing in its wake. Color was a pretty Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 -5) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was primarily of grapefruit-citrus hops, although I caught a whiff of some malt giving it a measure of balance. Ah, as a hophead, I could sit here and inhale deeply all night and have no regrets, but that would not further this review. Mouthfeel was medium, approaching full. The taste was very fruity in terms of its hops, but I was getting a lot of tropical fruits (mango, pineapple, papaya) to go with the grapefruit citrus flavor. Wow! I was not expecting that, but it was a welcome change from all of the oddball beers that I have been drinking lately. Finish was more tropical than citrus but it was a really tasty beer as long as you like that sort of thing. I know that I do.
