A: Golden light-brown, poured into a Widmer 16oz. glass with two finger head that dissipates slowly. Significant lacing. Note: The last glass poured from the growler 24 hours later still had significant head -- nice retention.

S: Widmer got this so right. The combination of Citra hops and grapefruit peel works a special magic. Big grapefruit nose. Clean, fresh-sliced aroma, some pine, other citrus.

T: Classic APA boldness. A slap of hop flavor from the start that stays as a backbone. Very strong, juicy grapefruit rind bitterness. Malt is present, maybe caramelly, but is overcome by satisfying resinous hoppy flavor.

M: Moderate oily hop feel. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol.

I could drink this one all summer. It's one I hope Widmer doesn't leave behind, but instead gives a recurring role.

This tied for my favorite beer at GABF last night. I can't comment much on appearance based on the sampler cup, but the combination of Citra hops and grapefruit peel was amazing. The aroma was unmistakably Citra, but there was a nice amount of grapefruit in the flavor. I would have never thought of using them together but it worked perfectly. Definitely not a standard IPA but excellent nonetheless.
