A: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Body is clear, golden-tangerine in color with a small white head on top. Lots of fine-bubbled carbonation rising - all the way to the bottom of the glass. Some splotchy lace on the way down.
S: Grapefruit & grapefruit pith over a faintly sweet malt foundation.
T: A touch of bready malt underneath, but then it's all about the citrus and grapefruit. Finishes with a grapefruity, lemony bitterness that lingers on the palate.
M: Pretty creamy; those fine bubbles of carbonation soften the feel. Call it light-to-medium in heft.
O: Very good stuff. I know it seems like "cheating" to add grapefruit peels to get that citrusy, grapefruity taste (instead of just relying on the hops), but I don't care - it works.
