Clear golden body with a white head, good head retention and lacing. Grapefruit, tropical fruit and floral aromas lead to bright citrusy, grapefruit flavors that end with a pine finish that is lightly bitter.

Colored deep gold, yet cloudy with chill haze. Atop the beer we find a frothy layer of pure white bubbles that cling to each other and the glass in sizeable globs.

The aroma is replete with grapefruit pith and juice. Mango and papaya play off to the sides while honey and a hint of just-baked French bread provide solid ground for them to do so.

Pith and pulp from grapefruit – I’m guessing of the ruby red variety – make for a very sharp, bright flavor in the fore, with a level of bitterness that seems higher than the documented 70 IBUs. It’s like biting right into a grapefruit rind and just going for it. Balance returns when pale, sugary malt and tropical hop notes, now seasoned with pineapple and peach, return at the finish.
