750 ml poured into a 20 oz Firestone glass.Golden color with a 3 inch head.Very nice slight hoppy smell with a touch of grapefruit.Very mellow brew not overly harsh.I liked it.Nice kick to it at 8.5 ABV.Would have to say that it`s a good value at 8.99 a bottle compared to a lot of other Bruery products.I would get this again.Give it a try.

Bought this bottle over a year ago. Aged it for 14 months.

a: Translucent orange with a huge white head which required several additional pours. The head receded fairly quickly to patchy surface foam and patchy to dense lacing.

s: Intense light fruit bordering on vinegary.

t: Similar to the nose at first. Near the edge of unpleasant for awhile but still drinkable. Improves a lot as it is consumed, with the vinegary aspect muted in favor of intense light fruit.

m: Medium, lots of carbonation tingle.

o: Starts out a near drain-pour but gets a lot better as it goes. Perhaps I should not have aged this.
