4.1/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle (no date I could find) poured into a milkshake pilsner glass.

Appearance: A clear orange-copper color with a off-white to light tan head. Pours about 1/4" thick foam, but this dies down to a thin ring around the edge and a very thin skin across the top. Delicate lacing of dots and strands noted.

Smell: Good and strong grapefruit and pine smells. Pleasantly hoppy and smells quite tasty.

Taste: Grapefruit and pine hop flavors right up front moving quickly into a maltier flavor (caramel...maybe, can't tell) followed by a bitter finish and some lingering bitter flavor in the mouth later. A very hop forward beer, but not so overpowering that it becomes hops only.

Mouthfeel: Some quick carbonation on the tongue, and then it's gone to be replaced with some lingering sensation on the teeth. A slick and coating beer going down.

Drinkability: Very tasty and this one was gone fast but I cannot see myself having another one right away. I'm noticing the higher ABV early on despite having this with a meal. Incidentally, this went quite well with a meal of Mexican scrambled eggs and salad. I thought it might work with this and it did. Pretty good beer overall - quite good in the aroma dept. and good all around, but I think I can only have one at a time.
