Pours a one finger, off-white, creamy head. Color is a clear amber with lots of lace blanketing coverage. Aroma of pine, grapefruit flesh and citrus peel. Medium body, bitter upfront and in the middle, but dries out some in the finish, but still some remaining bitterness. Tastes of pine, grapefruit flesh and peel, grass with bitterness and resinous. Quite good and I enjoyed, but needs to be more dynamic to get to next level.

Poured from a tap at Monarch Grill. Creamy yet frothy head that doesn?t look like it?s going anywhere. Somewhat cloudy red color. Strong grapefruit aroma. Bold taste, but not as bitter as I assumed it would be. This is a good beer.

Good stuff. Definitely a lot of citrus, like a ton of grapefruit on this one. Nice hoppy bitterness with excellent balance. I’m definitely gonna try to find this one on tap it’s excellent.

Can from Vintage Cellar, Blacksburg VA. Pours slightly hazy, nice head. Aroma of West coast hops, some sweet malt. Malt increases as beer warms. Very nice take on the style from a newish east coast brewery. Alcohol is well-hidden.

Pint can that came from Nate as a Christmas gift. A big creamy beige head leaves sticky lace. The beer is very clear amber. An aroma that is full of citrus and pine. Flavor, too. Big robust hops. The bitterness is moderate and there is some astringency. Crackery malts. Resin. Those hops are active and work well together and carry this one into the winner’s circle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a dark amber color with an enormous soapy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy sour caramel, pine, resin and a bit of lemon. The flavor was bitter pine, resin, tangy malts and sour caramel. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Can from capones. Pours hazy amber with minimal head. The carbonation on this seems low. The aroma is all citrus. Tons of grapefruit juice with a touch of pine. The taste is big grapefruit juice, sweet, then followed by a strong bitterness. Very nice, strong bitter finish of medium duration.
