crossovert (11398) - Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Smells quite a bit funkier than the oiginal. The flavor heavily bends on the grapefruit with a heavy acidic bitterness. I like it.

Draft at Craft. Pours turbid thick orangy, looking a lot like orange juice, with off-white head. Nose is big grapefruit, some oak, hops, florals and spices. Tastes grapefruit-forward, very complex in flavor and with a great mouthfeel, with some oak, coriandery spice, florals, and a rich grapefruit finish. This one is juicy and thoroughly quaffable.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Tap at Churchkey. Pours clear golden. Weaker foam. Nose is moderately funky, fresh dough, hefty buttery chardonnay barrel. Spicy grapefruit comes though at first then fades. Light butteriness is hill farmstead saison like. Taste is tangy, more buttery chardonnay, some mealy apple detracts. Low acid level, refreshing. Dustier palate as it warms.
