on tap into a 10 oz snifter. aromas mostly candied fruit. taste has more of the fresh juicy fruit. not too much dankness. little carbonation. went down pretty well, might've enjoyed the beer's characteristics with just a hint less alcohol involvement, less maltiness

on tap at the Brewery & Public House, Portland

Bright bronze with rings of snowy white foam.
Musty grapefruit rind nose - Citra? - with some Pledge.
Creacked wheat crackers then pink grapefruit, resin, and Cointreau hops.
Dried pineapple finish and sugared grapefruit linger.
Medium, chewy, some oil.

Big fruity hops - all the sweetest parts of citrus from Amarillo, Cascade and Citra. No burn, light enough, and wears its IBUs easily. But too sugary to quaff.
