3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours clear orange with a large off-white head. Sweet and hoppy aroma with grapefruit and spicy hops backed by caramel; very nice. Flavor has hops in the form of grapefruit, grassy, and floral hop flavors, with a bit of alcohol on the finish. Medium bitterness. Pretty good, but I’d like the flavors to come together just a bit more.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a fairly light/golden color. The nose is a piny as a Christmas tree, one decorated with grapefruit rinds. The flavor is delightful. Full of hops, bitter with a slightly sweet even floral finish, the high alcohol content present throughout but still smooth, refreshing and easy to drink. An incredibly wonderful beer.
