3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber color with 1 finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves small to moderate lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, very bitter grapefruit hop, some resinous hops. Medium to full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Very long bitter finish. This beer packs a punch. Very hop driven, which I love, although not well balanced given the IBUs. I enjoyed this one!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from tstockstrom (thanks a lot, Chuck), pours a cloudy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma is full of dried tropical fruits, orange zest and a truckload of citrus hops. Flavour is extremely bitter, full of orange and grapefruit rinds, loads of zest, loads of tropical fruits (mangos and pineapples), and boat loads of citrusy hops. Pungent bitterness with a very dry fruity dominance. Leaves a dry, high astringency on the finish. Very good stuff.
