Tasted On: 03-14-2013
Freshness: The bottling date is illegible
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Goblet
Purchased: Received in a trade

A: Clear and bright copper-colored beer with a finger's worth of white head. Lacing is good with a fair amount of retention.

S: Mostly grapefruit and citrus hop aroma, with a supporting cast of caramel malts and some floral notes.

T: Resiny hop taste, with a big grapefruit acidity and bitterness. I get some alcohol warmth too. Mellows a bit as the beer comes closer to room temps.

M: Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The finish is dry with a small malt sweetness, but mostly shows of the citrus hop character.

O: This was an enjoyable brew, although it did seem a bit one-dimensional. I'd recommend it for hop lovers.

Thanks to buschbeer for this one!
