A former favorite of my mine. My palate doesn't enjoy it quite as much these days, but my nose certainly does. 12oz, poured into a pint glass.

APPEARANCE: Orangeish amber, surprisingly clear. Contrary to some of the other reviews on here, I noticed minimal haze. Not much in the way of lacing.

AROMA: A little weak, but this beer honestly smells amazing. The gamut of citruses (especially grapefruit), apricot, and some pine in the background. I could use this as cologne until they realize what's going on.

TASTE: No. No. This is not what my nose signed up for. This is betrayal. Excessive malt followed by a too-long lingering citrus+caramel (???) aftertaste. It's like the aroma's complexity is evaporating in my mouth. It's not terrible, but it leaves much to be desired.

MOUTHFEEL: As medium-bodied as it gets. Goes down smoothly, but leaves a prickle on your tongue.

OVERALL: 3.25. It's a solid beer, taste not withstanding. Unfortunately, like any reasonable human being, I consider taste to be a beer's most important factor. I certainly wouldn't reject it if offered... but honestly, I probably wouldn't reject any beer you offered me, either.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a nice amber color and a somewhat hazy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Good, but not great lacing.

S: A sweet aroma of hops, citrus, malt, and some pine.

T: Tasted of a good shot of hops, a lot of citrus (grapefruit and orange, in particular), a hint of pine (not as much as in the aroma), light malt, and some other fruit as well. A sweet and lively flavor that's not as heavy on the citrus as I would have guessed. Rather, it's a good balance of hops and fruit.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a prickly finish. Medium-bodied.

O: While this isn't quite as brilliant a beer as the score makes out, it is quite drinkable. Easy to drink.

I really enjoy this beer and consider it one of my favorites. I love that it is easy to drink while still having the citrusy/piney profile I enjoy in my everyday IPA. It carries a fresh fruity hop aroma. Definitely worth trying.

Bottle.

A: Bright grapefruit, citrus and light berry hoppy aroma with a light malt presence.

A: Copper color, totally clear, with a frothy white head that has solid retention, light lacing in the glass.

T: Big grapefruit, citrusy and light berry hoppy flavor that gives way to a light malt presence and faint sweetness.

M: Medium-light bodied, lightly juicy, with moderate carbonation.

O: Solid; the beer has a grapefruit, citrusy, berry presence and is lightly juicy with light malt support. All in all, pretty easy to drink when fresh!
