Poured from a 22oz bottle like the one in the picture. Glassware used was an imperial pint glass. Clear golden color; aggressive carbonation, topped with a burgeoning pillowy white head that left a good account of its drinker's progress after each quaff.
Aroma is strong of grapefruit and, to a lesser degree, other citrus notes. Also a good dose of pine some tropical fruits and malty notes.
Wow, this one packs on the grapefruit taste; one of the most potent grapefruit laden beers I've had in quite a while. The pine resins and hops oils definitely push the slightly bready, nutty malt bill off to go sit in the nosebleed section.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, well-carbonated, and tingly on the palate.
If you're a hophead like I am, this is the beer for you. Very West Coast in flavor and aroma and quite drinkable. Worth seeking out.
