Picked up this beer at Whole Foods as part of a mix-a-six for $9. Can't beat that.
I poured the beer from the bottle into a snifter. Immediately notice a healthy head that becomes two-fingers thick after the full pour. The head is creamy, chewy and frothy, quite beautiful. Lace on the glass is healthy as well. The beer has an amber and copper color that is quite inviting.
The smell is very citrusy with a strong presence of grapefruit, as well as yeast and mild pineyness and grassiness from the hops. The taste begins again with the grapefruit and citrus, then receives a bitter blast from the hops with a grassy taste, and then the booze emerges at the back end to light up the tongue a bit. The beer has a good level of carbonation and is light initially, but it ends bitter, boozy and dry.
Overall, a delicious, highly complex beer. The yeast seem to have made the most impact on the nose and create an enticing beer. Well done.
