Amazing amber color with mild carbonation and decent head. Citrus with a hint of floral notes in the aroma. Really hoppy aroma. My first words were "Wait WHAT THE HECK?". This beer is all over the place. The floral hop flavor really comes through with some citrus and a bit of malt in the back. Too many different things in one beer. This beer is like the color grey. It doesn't know if it's white or black. We feel like there a lot of different components that each are great in their own right, but together are...something else.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped BB Mar312014-2883-0806. Sampled on November 23, 2013.

It begins with a copper-amber pour with a fizzy white head that fades fast.

The aroma is of caramel and toffee malts with a floral hoppiness that is much more akin to grapefruit.

The body is medium with a slight acidity in the texture.

The taste has an obvious caramel and toffee quality at first which is abruptly replaced by the grapefruit bite at the end. In the end it is more hoppy than most pilseners I have had.
