Had on tap last night a couple different times at Granite City. Review from phone notes.

A- Poured a clear darker orange/amber color. One and a half finger bone white head sticks around for a short period before dying down to nothing. Leaves some skirted lacing on the sides for the entire glass. First beer here that actually impresses me in apperance.

S- Big citrus hops come first (pineapple and orange). Some bitter hops come through as well but play a background roll in the aroma. Some sweeter malts come into play in the tail end of the nose with a sweetbread kind of aroma. This is mostly hops in this beer. Quite surprised!

T- Citrus hops clash with the bittering hops right off the bat in this beer. Light sweet malts come into play midway through the beer balancing it all out. Ending of this beer is a little more bitter than the front of the beer. Every good tasting.

M- Medium mouthfeel to this. Carbonation is good for the beer style. Citrus hops roll around the bitter hops on the palate and aftertaste long after a sip is taken. Crisp in the taste. Everything zings around on the palate.

D- This is the first beer I had from Granite City that I feel they actually took the time with and made right. To be honest I didn't expect much and came out of there with a smile on my face. I will be back before it's taken off of tap that is for sure!
