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.

12oz bottle received as an extra from generous BA trader, Ckoz.
Slightly hazy, saffron colored elixir poured into SA glass. Huge two finger, white fluffy head, retained throughout the tasting. Thick lacing coats the glass.
Wonderful aromas of citrus (lemons, tangerines), rind, earthy hops and spice.
Nice amalgam of the smooth bitterness with intermingling notes of earth and spice with the citrus making an appearance at the end for a nice tangy aftertaste. Well done.
Medium body, alcohol well hidden.
Really impressed with this IPL, in fact the best one I have tasted. This would be a go to brew if available in OH. Nice job by Jack's Abby.
