I tried the beer on tap recently. The first thing I noticed was the smell. It smells strongly of grapefruit, of which I am a big fan. It feels a bit thin or watery on the tongue. It has a fairly strong citrus overtones in the hops and the taste of grapefruit lingers after each sip. This is a pretty big beer, 8.5%ABV but I didn't taste even a hint of alcohol. All in all I thought this was an excellent beer and am disappointed to learn that it's a seasonal beer.

I tried it on tap. It has a watery mouthfeel with very low carbonation. A lemon-zest citrus note comes through in the hops on the nose with a little bit of grapefruit. Grapefruit bitterness lingers afterward with a somewhat syrupy finish on the tongue. The saving light of this beer is the fact that it's 8.5% ABV and you can't taste even a hint of alcohol; I thought it was about 4% when I tried it. When it's ice-cold it's pretty decent.
