Bought this bottle a while back, but have been waiting for something special to have it. Skyping with a good friend seemed the perfect occasion.
Poured from my Limited Edition bomber into my Upland tumbler. Nice coppery color, with a respectable head.
Smells terrific. Lots of citrus, grapefruit being dominant.
More of the same from the taste. Its citrusy (lots of grapefruit) but they positively nailed the malt backbone. If you've read many of my other reviews, you will know that I am an absolute stickler for balance. This beer nailed it.
Mouthfeel is nice. Mild-medium carbonation like an IPA should be.
Utterly drinkable. Limited Release makes it hard to drink a ton of this, but this is an exceptional beer and should be sought out and bought should you find it in a store!
