I picked up a 4-pack of this at Krugel's in Wilkes-Barre last week for $13.49. Have had a couple already, but not during any possible reviewable time. The bottle is unlike what is currently pictured; it says "Crown Series" and has a painted label of a mermaid holding a few steins as its main feature.

Poured one into one of those high tech Sam Adams glasses.... It is a bit cloudy, and a bright golden color. There's a plethora of very active carbo within, and the head is a touch off-white, frothy and healthy. The foam sticks well to the glass, also. The aroma is easily noticed quite a distance from the glass itself, and has loads of pithy, grapefruity hops. It is only a slight bit prickly on the tongue, and the body is a decent medium.

There might be a hint of malty sweetness here, but it's not readily noticeable. What there is plenty of is hoppage. There's a solid dose of grapefruit along with some pineapple and pithy, rindy bitterness. I did get a smidge of sweetness, but it is more in the form of apricot jam and honey than anything malt-based. The hops linger nicely, and are never really overly bitter at all. Scarily, I don't feel anything of the 8.5% ABV here... Pretty good, overall, even if a tad pricey. Prosit!!
