Purchased at The Beer Store in Southamptom, PA as part of a mix/match 6pk.
Price averaged out to $2.50/bottle
Enjoyed in a DFH Pint Glass
A - Color is a rather opaque, slighty cloudy, orangey, copper color. Pours with a massive two to three finger frothy head. The head very slow disapates and there is a ragged lacy left on the side of the glass after finishing.
S - Slighty sour yet slightly sweet smell. Nothing thats says "wow" right off the bat.
T - Decent tasting beer. A good deal of maltiness with a decent amount of citrus and hops. Even with an ABV of 6.5%, which isn't that high to begin with, the alcohol is barely noticeable.
M - Very thin feeling on the tongue, not thick or heavy at all. Really nice carbonation adds to the overall drinkability.
D - This is a very drinkable and, in my opinion, a very sessionable beer. Not very heavy tasting so it would be quite easy to down a few of these without much problem.
Overall - A good beer but nothing that hits you with a "wow" factor. That's not to say it isn't good, I just feel there are better examples out there. I wouldn't really seek this out but I wouldn't have a problem drinking some more in the future if the opportunity presents itself.

The beer has good grapefruit and floral hop aroma.
The flavor follows with some American hops in the front of grapefruit and citrus peel. Then the beer has a substantial malt backbone, with surprisingly even some alcohol on the back. This is a bit of surprise considering the ABV.
One of the poorer, yet somewhat reasonable attempts at the style.
