A: Pours a transparent copper. Two fingers just off white head. Retention is stellar. Mild carbonation. Lacing is also stellar.

S: Truly powerful grapefruit aroma. Underlying tropical fruit, spruce, pine. Underneath that is the malt. Light notes of caramel and toffee dance with a slight hint of breadiness.

T: Straight shot of grapefruit bitterness. Incredibly dry finish. Ever so slight booziness detected throughout, but it only adds to the citrus and tropical fruit infusion. Shot of peppery-spicy note that lights up for a split second. Finishes completely dry. Lean and crisp. Aftertaste of tart and bitter citrus (grapefruit/lime) rind.

M: Medium bodied. Amazingly dry and crisp, especially considering the abv.

O: Simply an amazing beer. Firestone does it YET AGAIN. Seriously, this brewery may be the best in the nation.
