3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel malt and fruity, flowery hops in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and bready. Finish is flowery and citrus/fruity, and slightly sour. Nice beer, but not as good as some of the other "Racers."

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aluminum can: Aroma is fragrant with the smell of freshly squeezed grapefruit and blood orange fruit which sparked interest. Liquid appeared a murky gold that had an eruption of bubbles rising to the top. A brief formation of foam head but quickly fizzed out. Looks similar to champagne. The flavor is initially bitter with intense moments of sourness across my tongue. Finish reminds me of some strong type of cheese as the beer leaves behind a salty residue around my lips. Not a beer that I am entirely thrilled about spending over $13 for a 6 pack.
