4.33/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Rich copper color beer under tight etching head that lasts. Nose is tropical fruits under citrus; grapefruit, lemon-peel, tangerine, pine is subordinated.

Taste is bitter when cold, warms to release some sweet malt, but the predominant taste is tropical and grapefruit hops. Just enough malt to balance the bracing bite.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, and could stand to be fuller-bodied, but I quibble. Thanks to Binny's in Skokie: I got the last four pack in the store--there were three cases of the hop head red. So nice to have fresh West Coast for direct comparison.
