Pale golden body looked clear, and exhibited a lot of active carbonation, which formed a one finger thick head. The smell was very citric and tempting me to jump into tasting immediately. The flavor was spicy, sugary, and herbal, with crisp West Coast vibe. Loved the sticky body, and drawn out finish as well. Like a one dimensional B-movie, with some scenes of gore, and a couple of shots of topless girls, this was a simple construction that was greater than the sum of its parts. It was a worthwhile visit. Like Gamma Ray, this deserves to be promoted out of the side project series, and into the main line.

Poured into a rinsed chalice from the bottle.
A: hazy golden deep orange Suspended carbonation or solids, can't tell. one finger head quickly dissipated to a thick collar and some islands of bubbly head. Some say generous lacing, I am getting some but not generous. No legs are visible.
S: Musty grapefruit. Synephrine laced orange pith. Carmel or other medium roasted malts. Malted milk ball centers.
T: Puckery grapefruit, bitter citrus. Huge malt stands up very well to the hops. Sweetness like a candy sugar, most likely unfermented caramel malts and not candy sugar. Bittersweet is the perfect moniker for this beer. Yeast is not offensive, just a light estered note.
M: SMOOOTH,carbonation is spot on and malts are generating some sweet smoothness. Very slightly dry at finish with phenolic notes on outbreath. Hides booziness pretty well.
O: Big. Has the most grapefruit notes I have had since Devil Dancer, without the huge dryness and desert parching qualities of DD. This is pretty good for a high IBU grapefruit bomb.
