3.86/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

The liquid pours a dirty gold color. Nearly clear, just a bit of a chill haze. Starts with a half-finger head that settles quickly into rim bubbles. Some streaks and spots for lace.

The name suits the smell--lots of citrus (grapefruit rind) as well as pleasant floral hop and soft, lightly toasted malt. Excellent well-balanced aroma.

The taste comes across more one-sided as in lots of straight up hop (black peppery) bitterness. Long aftertaste that ends extremely dry almost astringent. Thinnish body, neutral carbonation.

This is the tale of a great smell and an over-hopped taste. Even if this was an IPA, I'd say there is too much of a good thing...and I'm a hop head! Still, this beer does NOT cross over into the extreme category, but it comes real close. (776 characters)

2.5/5  rDev n/a
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

I felt it was just not a very pleasant flavor. I did not get any citrus despite that being in the name of the beer, and it was just straight bitter. I think Aegir (and other Norwegian breweries) are held back quite a bit by the 4.7% alcohol rule; it would be interesting to see what they could do with their everyday beers if not limited. (338 characters)
