Limited reserve series 750 ml bottle served into a goblet. Don't let the whole 'pink' put you off this, I assure you it is a serious beer and one very worth trying - despite the high price tag! Pours a nice copper colour with excellent lacing. The first thing that hits you is the aroma - massive fruitiness, pine, and tropical notes . The taste falls into line nicely. The citra is very prominent, as is the pink grapefruit, which for me, worked in perfect harmony. Hoppy, citrusy, with a hint of sweetness from the grapefruit, and balanced out by an assertive amount of bitterness which leads to a dry finish. The balance is what does it for me, it could have been so easy to get carried away with the pink grapefruit aspect of the beer but they have nailed it. It is vibrant, bitter, hoppy, and for those who like citra, this is an excellent example of how well it stands up as a dry hop. It is very approachable and easy to drink at 6% too. I can't say enough about good this beer is. There is just such an abundance of flavour and complexity that makes every sip a true pleasure. Really worth a try and hats off to a new brewery for such a well executed IPA.
