A: Pours a cloudy, coppery, orange with a finger of frothy white head.
S: The main aromas are of typical American hops: pine and citrus in almost equal amounts.
T: A pleasant grapefruit flavor hits first with a burst of bitterness hot on its heels. This is followed by a more mellow citrus flavor backed by a characteristic wheat graininess. This all slowly fades with an almost sweet citrus character lingering slightly.
M: The bitterness in this beer is almost palpable as an actual physical sensation as it barrels down the center of your tongue, brief as it is. It makes your whole mouth tingle in a not unpleasant way. Unusual, but interesting.
O: An interesting beer, and one I wouldn't mind drinking again on a hot day. Very refreshing, and with a flavor profile that's interesting enough to not bore you after a glass.
