Handsome clear amber with plenty of foam. Sprightly mouthfeel and fairly light body. Some pleasant mango-like aromatics. Flavor is grapefruit and a lingering pithy bitterness. And an even longer bitter aftertaste. Faint touch of malt is pleasant while it lasts. Sharp and acidic. I can't see any point in this one. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Mollie Stone's market in San Francisco.

A-Pours a fairly clear, dark gold color. Minimal head. Head does leave some lacing.

S-Not incredibly intense but a bit coarse. Grapefruit and pine mostly. Hop forward but I don't love how the hops are presenting themselves here.

T-More of the same. Each sip makes me like this beer less and less. It just tastes like it was put together in an awkward fashion. Bitter but without much flavor behind the bitterness.

M-Medium to light bodied. Dry and bitter. Not too high in drinkability.

O/D-Not a big fan of this one.

Had this last night, reviewed from notes. Bomber to pint glass, no dates

Pours a nice golden orange with a finger and a half of foam. Alright lacing and retention

Smells of earthy mandarin, pine, light grapefruit, with a solid caramel malt

Taste follows the smell pretty well, earthy and floral citrus hops- mostly mandarin and orange with some grapefruit. Finishes with caramel and a little bit of alcohol

Feel is a moderate body with good bitterness and low carbonation. Alcohol is hidden well, pretty easy to drink

Overall not bad, nothing special about it either
