Best by 08/19/09 on label. Poured into a Moonlight nonic pint glass. Pretty quick rising cream colored head. Nice prism of color- red/orange/yellow. Fragrant aromas of grapefruit rind with a subtle whiff of pine. There is some honey bread sweetness too.
Taste seems little thin at first. Good hop flavor...chalky grapefruit pine needle melange. Not much malt flavor to be found yet very hopped restrained. Good and easy to drink.
Serving type: bottle

A: deep red hue, slightly red (although this is a dark bar), very thin head
S: fruity and bitter, freshly cut wood (elm?)
T: Immediate bitter bite, nodes of grapefruit, lemon-peel, and woody. The last sips were better than the first (maybe due to warming)
M: Tingly and dry (gingerale mouthfeel without carbonation level) Flavor sticks to the mouth longer than most.
O: Drinkability- decent. It is comparable to Surly furious with water-downed citrus. Head dissolves very quickly. Aftertaste is good at first, but stayed into the next lager. Not bad- would drink again, but not rave worthy.
Serving type: on-tap
