Starts rather good. Citrusy but the finish is a tad off.

In my imperial pint glass the beer was a hazy pale yellow color. There was a nice white head and ample lace.
Aroma of sweet malt and citrus.
Taste followed the nose. Sweet caramel first, quickly overtaken by grapefruit and orange.
A very smooth beer.

Got a growler of this during a visit to The Brewery on 21FEB15 with Alewife. Time to dig in while watching the Bruins on TV....

Filled an imperial pint nonic with round one.... It is a light golden straw color, with a bit of haze. Carbo is scattered and slow, and the head, initially at a solid inch, is now a 1/4" layer of fluffy white foam. Lacing is quite nice sticking to the glass. Smell is rather pithy and citrussy, easily detectable away from the glass. The body is just about medium, and the scant carbo makes for a pretty smooth feel on the tongue.

The flavor has a bit of bready malt at the outset, lending some subtle sweetness to the proceedings. That malt is just a brief flash on the palate, though, as a healthy dose of bitterness arrives without delay. There's a bit of pineapple, grapefruit and pithy lemon peel here. A bit of sweetish apricot also shows up, along with more rindy bitterness in the lingering finish. Nice stuff, as always, from the gang at Portsmouth.... Prosit!!!
