On tap at the Promenade Beer & Wine Festival in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a hazy golden-orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, but the mouthfeel is a bit flat and diminishes the drinkability for me.

Serving type: on tap.

Poured from a 22-ounce bottle a clear golden under one-inch thick white head which fades slowly and leaves splotches and spots of lace. Aroma is mild citrus, herbal, pine and floral. Taste is malty, piney with some grapefruit. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes with a bitter and resiny note.

this beer is no longer retired! wine warehouse rep was kind enough to drop off a sample 22oz bottle. an amber colored brew with a thin, off white head, plunder does not seem to have much carbonation evident in the glass. aroma reminds me of baked cinnamon rolls, with orange and grapefruit notes in the back. i get a generous scent of pink grapefruit on the attack, with a medium body malt rounding out the mid palate. the beer is not overtly bitter, but far from cloying and sweet. i find it on the flatter side, with too little carbonation. drinks like a red ipa with plenty of citrus zip, but lacks a strong mouthfeel.
