Smells liek straight up grapefruit juice. Flavor is a melange of orange juice, grapefruit juice, and maltwater. It could use more body but all in all nice.

Awesome new brew from the guys over at Sierra Nevada. Crisp and clean with notes of tropical fruit and citrus flavor. Does not finish sweet odor clingy, nice for this style.

This is a nice, strong American amber. It has a fresh, citrus hop character and a rich malt backbone without being overly sweet or sticky. There is just a touch of toasty malt character. This really nails what it’s going for. Good beer.
