Orange pull with a generous head on top. Smell is grapefruit, hoppy, delightful. The flavour on this is a combination of malted caramel notes with straight-up grapefruit. The grapefruit is unique, it's a bit more tangy/tart and less abrasive than one would normally find in a beer, it's still very hoppy, but it's smoother on the tongue for some reason.
Mouth is crisp, easy to drink. Drinkability is exceptional. I'm not a big pale fan in general because I usually would either rather have an IPA or something more malty, but this stuff is solid gold and is easily my favourite beer in the style. I wish Short's would start bottling this stuff in lieu of the more pedestrian Pandemonium offering.
Serving type: on-tap
