I was lucky enough to find this at 7 Monks in Traverse City the day after a Short's tap takeover. I normally review and take notes during sampling, but frankly doing this one from memory.

I recall the tulip glass arriving at the table, and I said to my wife "this is exactly what a beer should look like." Slightly cloudy and amber.

Aroma and taste were just perfect in my book. Bright citrus, nice bite at the end but not nearly as sharp as their Liberator.

I am a huge fan of Short's...this is the best of the bunch in my book. Pleeaaase bottle it.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Golden orange body. Fleeting but nice white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Citrusy hops. Belgian yeast and sweetness. A little phenolic.

Taste - Much maltier. Grapefruit hop. Sweet pale malts. Super bitter in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Very bitter.

Overall - Very bitter, but good.
