Wow, what a great smelling beer. It's an awfully handsome, clear golden pour into a tulip, with a big cottony head that sticks around.

The aroma really distinguishes this brew. Sweet, juicy fruits galore: red grapefruit, pineapple, and finally sweet tangerine. Perhaps a honey/floral tea character.

Its early sweetness is all fruit juice. Yum. The hops come on as a salty, white grapefruit bitterness. There's almost no malt sweetness; the sweetness is fruit, only. Not candied fruit, just juicy sweet fruit. Once it's down the gullet, the aftertaste turns sharply bitter, white grapefruit rind. That hurts this beer.

Great medium-bodied richness. The high carbonation is great.

12oz bottle in a pint glass.

A- Copper - golden orange color with a massive and billowy white head that lasts. lots of sticky foam lacing.

S- Big blast of citrus hop aroma, ruby red grapefruit. Some tropical stuff, too, pineapple.

T- Sweet malts, very sweet. Caramel. The citrus flavor is mild compared to the aroma. This bottle was given to me by a friend, freshness may be an issue here.

M- Solid feel and body. Sweet, sticky, and resinous. Lasting hop bitterness.

O- A bit too sweet to palate wreck, perhaps. Good, though.
