3.54/5  rDev -3.5%

On tap at the brewpub in the outskirts of San Antonio. An IPA witbier cross.

Cloudy golden color with a fine white head that leaves the glass coated with lacing.

Aroma: mildy funky yeast

Flavor: pungent and bitter with some fruity tartness. Plenty of grapefruit rind from the finish onwards.

Feel: near medium body and crisp but soft medium carbonation.

O: too much grapefruit peel for me.

Appearance: Very clear, pale gold with a solid quarter finger of white head that lasts and laces in clumpy tidemarks.

Smell: A bit of lemon peel, with a catty hop note. Lots of fresh hop bitterness oozing out of the glass.

Taste: Hop driven, but doesn't go so bitter it burns or puckers, just a nice fresh citric/catty hop blend that has a bit of earthy dusty hop to finish. Even lets a flash of sweetness show in the middle as it goes citric hop, sweet, lingering earthy hop. Great profile.

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation almost goes cask, medium body is oily but manages to finish pretty clean.

Overall: Great beer! Full flavor but doesn't rip your face off, looking forward to slowly draining the growler.

Picked up a couple weeks ago from the brewery.
