From a bomber into a Tallgrass tulip
A: pale apricot color, huge head, some bubbles
S: grapefruit and lots of it, together with some floral notes and pale bready malt and a little caramel sweetness.
T: what one would expect from the nose. hops dominate here, and are a little one-note to me, when compared with the best in style. i like the balance between bitterness and sweetness, though, and there is some nice zest that comes with the citrus flavors.
M: smooth, medium body, carbonation seems moderate which is about right. Dries out toward the end, with a nice lingering bittersweetness.
