Served from a bottle poured into a tulip glass (46F). Bottled on 21 September 2011; served on 15 October 2011.
A-Pours a clear golden-orange color. A nice, thick foamy white head. Good lacing after every drink.
S-A good swirl brings out pine. As the beer settles, more floral and citrus aromas are revealed. Overall sweetness to the aroma.
T-The sweet aroma carries into the first taste of the beer with grapefruit character. The malt backbone reveals itself and balances nicely with the hops and bitter finish.
M-Takes over your palate with a lasting bitterness. Starts slick but finishes sticky and mouthwatering.
O-The aroma to flavor transition is terrific. A good breath through the nose during a drink prepares the palate for the beer. The lasting bitterness that sticks to the palate makes your mouth water for another drink.
