Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 12-18-2002

This brew uses several varieties and multiple hop additions to the kettle as well as a large "hop back" to give the bitterness and aroma a start. Plenty of dry hops finish it off and give a big hop bouquet.
Draft & 22oz bottles.

Bottle courtesy of Bu11zeye : Poured a light hazy blonde ale with a huge pure white foamy head with perfect retention and perfect lacing as well. Aroma of citrus and fresh grapefruit is just out of this world with some low bitter notes. Taste is also dominated by some fresh red ruby grapefruit with some bittering notes at the end. Probably one of the best aromas I've had in months of tasting new beers. Full body, creamy texture, perfect carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Wow!

Pours a clear golden orange with a frothy white head that leaves plenty of lacing.

Smells of piny and tropical hops with some sweetness.

Tastes of big hops with a wave of malt sweetness. Hops are characterized by citrus, pine, and a bit of tropical fruit with a good amount of bitterness. Malt has a big caramel note. Touch of spiciness comes through.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.
