Something very hoppy came this way with this beer. It poured a hazy golden with thin head that left a spotty lace. The scent carried fresh hops which leaned more towards bitter citrus. The taste has very hoppy and bitter...but not overly bitter. There was enough malt to help balance the beer. Grapefruit was the primary driver for this fine ale. The mouthfeel was medium in body with subtle carbonation. Overall this was a good beer....but 10% abv and the price keeps it from being a go to. Certainly worth a try, but I would go out of my way to search for this.
