From notes. Draft. Hazy deep golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of huge grapefruit and light spice. Taste has spiced brown bread, citrus. Tasty.

Tasted from handpull (Yuss!)... but from the bottom of the barrel as the pint appeared murky and full of suspended particles. I appreciate the desire for the pub to extract the maximum profit from the barrel, but it made for a very ugly pint. I took it back for a conference with the Beer Baroness and we poured afresh from a new source. It looked a bit better but was still cloudy and still had a few suspended particles. The colour began to show through a little better and I saw golden amber with a distinct reddish tinge. It smells gorgeous though: plentiful grapefruit hoppiness along with lemon-grass. Slightly spicy with a modicum of paprika. A taste demonstrates that ignoring any prejudice arising out of appearance is well worth it. Grapefruit sourness and fresh hoppy bitterness that while really is puckering just screams at you that you shouldn’t have just one pint. Tasted blind, even the most hardened cynic would rave about this beer. It has the bigger, better, faster hoppiness prevalent in many American beers but I would point out it has the depth and elegance of the underlying malts to make this beer quite a classy character. I reckon if I had had a pint from the top of an undisturbed barrel I would be a seriously happy camper. As it is I’m just a happy camper.

plenty of interesting flavours here, orange and other citrus plus some good maltiness (apparently rye in here), the biggest problem is that’s it’s just too astringent. otherwise quite nice.
