look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Best-by date of 2/28/2011. I missed by about 6 days.
A very hazy orange-amber color, with a nice dense off-white head that stays put for a long time. Lacing is solid. Lots of visible carbonation.
Wow, the aroma pretty much defines grapefruity hops. Also some pineapple notes. There is a hint of sweetness behind this, but by no means is it balanced. Not complaining, just noting. Taste is also big on the grapefruit and pineapple, some nice rounded malt in the middle before the hops come back in a bitter fashion for a strong but short finish. Nothing lingers, which is a bit of a disappointment.
A touch thin in the feel, but a good drinkable hoppy beer. Really nothing to rave about though. Average all-around.
