Bottle code D76A14 at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma citrusy, primarily grapefruit
Head large (8 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to a 2-3 mm layer with thick froth islands
Lacing abundant but irregular
Body medium yellow with some hop haze
Flavor begins with a burst of slight astringency typical of pink or red grapefruit, although the grapefruit flavor is absent; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl. The astringency quickly fades to a chalky finishing feel. A slight alcohol glow begins in the stomach.
Palate is light to medium body, watery but refreshing, with soft carbonation .
Overall, an easy drinking IPA with the potential to sneak up on one.
