Thanks for gifting me with this 12oz bottle Kegatron. Poured into a cervoise, the brew appears a clear golden yellow color with 3 fingers frothy topping. It fades leaving a soapy coating on the glass.
The aroma is strikingly like grapefruit juice. Pleasantly fruity and hoppy with other fruity and floral notes before getting a little carbonic and mineral-filled.
The flavor is juicy with hop flavoring again reminiscent of grapefruit pith, pulp and rinds. Almost a vinous aspect mid-palate. Quite a floral component fills a large portion of the flavor profile before getting a little grassy and dusty. It takes a few sips for the moderate bitterness and slight alcohol edge to evolve. Once warm a touch of diacetyl emerges with a slight toffee sweetness.
This is a medium to light bodied brew with modest carbonation. It is full of hop flavor and quite nice. Somewhat crisp and easy drinking. This is worth seeking out.

12 oz. poured into a pint tumbler. Big creamy 1 finger head, lots of lacing, crystal clear pale yellow golden color. Nose had fresh hops, resins, hops oils, bit musty, some fresh citrus fruit and grapefruit, almost no lager or malts.
Taste explodes with fresh citrus hops, grapefruit and tropical fruits, light hop resins and musty fresh hop oils, a bit oily, then some light lager fruits and light pale malts, some sweet toasty malts. Light sweet honey like flavor. The it gets very bitter and slightly astringent, the hops way overpower the lager flavors and gets a bit overly on the finish, dry and very bitter finish with lingering fresh hops and citrus, light pine as well, and has a sticky almost creamy feel.
I'm an IPA guy, not a Lager guy, but bumping the IBU's to 100 seemed to kind of work. I would choose this over many standard IPA's out there but prefer the 65 IBU's of their Hoponius Union over this. The beers seemed identical with welcomed less bitterness at 65 IBU.

12 ounce bottle. W/o freshness/bottling info that I can find.
Cloudy and straw hued. Near white cap that's sturdy and staying. Leaves ample low sheeting and plenty of bands and blobs of stick.
Grapefruit bomb of a nose.
Citric and hop forward Imperial lager. More grapefruit, lime and orange. Unflinchingly hoppy, crisp and quite enjoyable. Well worth a try.
