Reviewed November 14th 2011. Poured a 12 oz bottle, best by 05/17/11, into a Blue Star Brewery Pint glass. I admit this is past it's due date, but it hid in my fridge and I lost track of it.
A: Poured a nice one finger tan creamy head. Carbonation rises pretty strongly to the head, this carbonation sticks to the side and the bottom of the glass. The color was a Sinopia and Rust shades depending on center or edges of glass.
The head and carbonation does settle, but the head remain. Sadly this does not lace.
S: There are some nice citrusy hops. This does not actually seem very strong to me.
T: Not to strong of a taste on intake. Pine is what's tasted strongly towards the end. Grapefruit practically coats the mouth and I'm actually not a fan of it.
M: The body is smooth with surprisingly a high amount of carbonation.
O: Oddly with this aged taste this comes off to me as a Barleywine because of its strong grapefruit taste, but oddly not as strong as one. I do plan on re-reviewing due to this bottles best by date. The hops do age quite well here, but that just goes to show you this drink 6.8% alcohol by volume.
It just seems odd to me that this ages to the taste of a Barleywine. I guess if you enjoy a Grapefruit taste then this isn't a bad choice at all.
