4/5 rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Crystal-clear amber in color with a large, somewhat coarse off-white head. The lacing is quite nice, and covers the glass walls very well. Small streams of carbonation drift lazily to the surface.
Aroma: Massive notes of grapefruit rind utterly dominate the aroma. Beneath this, there is some caramel malt, but it is very understated against the hops.
Taste: Opens with a strong grapefruit and pine hop presence. Beneath this, there is a solid base of toasted and caramel malt. As the taste progresses, there is a brief moment of sweet caramel. In the latter stages of the taste, the hops ascend. The close of the taste leaves a lingering herbal bitterness.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, very pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A very well-crafted example. Those who prefer malty beers may be somewhat put off by the abundant hops.
Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.
Serving type: bottle

4.24/5 rDev +11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Darkish ruby amber, almost clear with a dissipated off white head.
S: Initially onions but it soon gives way to floral hops, English in character.
T: In the mouth the hops tastes more American with that classic orange peel profile but overall it drinks like an English bitter. Nice and sharp with an astute malt backbone which leaves a nice aftertaste, again reminiscent of English bitter. Too sharp for a session beer but on cask would be a different story.
M: Sharp and prickly. It's got heartburn written all over it.
O: Very nice. I'd love to try it on cask.
