(enjoy by 18 Jan 2015 - poured into a fat Chouffe tulip)

L: clear, grainy yellow-gold hue... beautiful, tightly-woven web of frothy, cottony white foam... curiously, little lace, as the foam chooses to glide down the wall of the glass

S: vintage Victory whole-flower hop character... orange, lemon, green grass... almost jelly-like, candy sweetness... mellow yet invigorating lemony alcohol... perhaps a slightly sourdough/lemon tart after the last 1/2 oz poured in

T: pungent, grassy/green onion hop flavor and zippy bitterness... subtle aftertaste of old-timey lemon hard candy... malt fills in just enough of the background to give it foundation, like a crust

F: soft, short, buzzing waves of foam... bit of a slick-ish finish and residual film sliding down the back end of the tongue... ends up blanket-soft, filling the palate with a burst of hop ghosts

O: lovely intensity of elegant yellow citrus and powdery white butter cookie flavor... the German engineering is still in effect... so utterly enjoyable - not much more they could do to improve its construct

Nose: Dank citrus, some tropical notes in the background
Body: Smooth carbonation, lacing is ridiculous, in a good way.
Taste: Citrus forward (orange/grapefruit), with some tropical fruits creeping in the background.

Overall, im not a huge fan of grapefruity beers, but this one does it right, everything is perfectly balanced. Cant tastethe ABV at all, you could tell me this is 6.5% and i would belive you.

This one should be inevery hop lovers rotation.
