12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Sept. 20, 2012 (purchased at Vons in Mission Gorge (San Diego, Calif.) for a 6-pack price of $8.99 (I think) (with card) on Sept. 19, 2012)). About a finger of head. Honey golden with white head. Average-to-below retention all-around.
Smelled a gigantic whiff of grapefruit citrus hops. Also some lemon and floral notes. A bit bitter, but it all comes together nice.
Tasted close to the nose, but didn’t have the same impact as the nose. Got that grapefruit taste in the front, which gave way to a huge bitter aftertaste. Could almost taste the grapefruit seeds. Got a slight taste of floral hops as well.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-above average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
A pretty good beer overall. I enjoyed it, but I don’t know how I’ll enjoy the other five.
