12 ounce bottle poured into my Racer 5 pint glass. This is my second bottle from this six-pack, and the first sure tasted fresh. This is one of my favorite west coast "gems".
A: Pours a hazy golden color with a wonderful lively frothy white head on top. Some "pancake batter" bubbles in the middle. I like that.
This brew is leaving great lacing on my glass as I work through it.
S: Grapefruit and pine in the nose. Moderate intensity.
T: Taste follows the nose. Taste starts smooth before grapefruit rushes in. This beer strikes a great balance, with just the right amount of sweet malt backbone behind to balance things out. It finishes wonderfully bitter, with a hint of pine, and yes, even MORE grapefruit goodness.
M: Light and lively, this beer has just the right level of carbonation, feels light in the mouth, and coats the tongue nicely with hop oils.
D/O: Drinkability is High. Very high. I love this beer. So much so that this bottle is actually my second of the evening. I liked the first one so much I decided to review the second.
