Pours yellow and hazy with a persistant white froth that eventually settles to one finger. big time lace.
the Aroma is very fruity with grapefruit dominant to the extent there's nothing else obvious. After a few determined whiffs I do find a little malty caramel.
In the flavor,that malty caramel comes and goes so quick it's barely there...then Grapefruit Bomb. It's a bit like Crooked Tree IPA in that it just turns into grapefruit juice. Limited complexity,and as with crooked tree...I'm wondering where my BEER went. I'm impressed by the deception,but want some OTHER beer taste too. I'd had a Celebration 12 pk,and there,while I got grapefruit,I also got other flavors and details.
Mouthfeel is good,while the malts don't flavor it much,they are there with some body. I let a bit warm,and eventually there was a little malt + depth,but by then it's warmer than I want an IPA.
Drinkable and indeed tasty and refreshing but I'd expected more. Very fresh....was just in town a couple days.
