This beer is outstanding. Probably the best offering I've ever had from Shorts; a brewer that I find to be very hit and miss. It pours a hazy copper amber color with a small white head that quickly gives way to nice silky lacing. The nose is pure dank hop bomb. Grapefruit, pot, pine, and tropical fruits abound. It smells so fresh and pleasing. The mouthfeel is sticky and coating and chewy. The flavor...freshest hop bomb possible. This rivals Stone Enjoy By for both freshness and flavor. Well done Shorts!

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours without much of a head. Small white head. No collar. Just some surface wisps.

Smell - Musty. Lots of caramel malt. A little grapefruit.

Taste - Better, but tastes kinda old. Lots of sweet caramel malt. Grapefruit. Grassy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Sweet. Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Not sure about the age on this.
