Fatehunter (2051) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw colored body. The aroma is malty and grapefruit. The taste is an interesting, but good mixture of pineapple, pine and grapefruit bitterness. It has a long strong bitter finish. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Its a pretty great IPA.
