64 oz growler served in a wine glass taster. Thanks to mishuggah for the share.

A: Pours a solid orange color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring. Some splotchy lace left down the glass.

S: Some dirty berry and some solid grapefruit flesh on the nose with a mild dried grass note and cracker malts.

T: Large grapefruit upfront, mostly fleshy, with just a touch of bitter pith. Sweet bready malts with some dirty, earthy hops on the finish.

M: Clean and light bodied with a medium carbonation level.

O: Definitely lives up to the name with the grapefruit, but I was still slightly disappointed in this one. It's pretty hyped and I think it fell a little flat in complexity.
