12-oz bottle to tulip. Unsure of the exact bottling date, but it is pretty fresh.
light golden body, crystal clear, yielding a large, frothy, effervescent, 2.5-finger off white head. very inviting
orange pith more than grapefruit. grassy floral notes, pineapple and pine, mild oniony quality
solid mix of malt sweetness, grapefruit and pine. dry, low carbonation
Owing to the lower alcohol content, this is far less of an undertaking than OTWOA. It is closer in alcohol content to Hop Stoopid. Comparing those two, this is similar in appearance, but the aroma and taste are more powerful. That's a good thing. Yet the "drinkability" on this is through the roof. One of the few beers I'd drink more than one of in a night.

32 oz bottle - poured into a porter goblet.
A - Golden. White head on the pour. Mellows into a thin consistent lace. light haze and clean.
S - Grapefruit, hops, faint bread.
T - Follows the smell. Grapefruit up front. Well balanced with yeast and a mild bready maltiness. Finish is crisp and semi bitter and refreshing. Cannot detect the alcohol.
M - Medium body. very nice on the palate.
O - I don't normally seek out hoppy beer. Picked this one up on a world beer tour challenge and glad I did. Really nice and enjoyable especially based on the fact that its a complete opposite of my favor of porters and stouts. Would definitely recommend and will buy again. Looking forward to an easy finish of the 32 oz bottle.
