3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can, courtesy stfun. This one pours a glowing sunset orange color and topped by a small, smooth head of off white foam that slowly settles to a thin film and leaving sudsy spots of lace around the glass. Thousands of bubbles quickly move up the glass giving it a lively appearance. The aroma is very west coat in nature showing big, juicy grapefruit and orange citrus up front followed by a toasted caramel malt base to add some sweetness to back up all the hop bitterness. The flavor follows suit, but not quite as bright as nose suggests with the juicy orange and bitter grapefruit up front along with notes of resinous pine. Toasted caramel and biscuit malts provide the balancing counterpart, but everything still tends toward to the bitter side from all the hops. The palate is substantial with some residual sugars adding heft to go with moderate carbonation that leads to a lengthy, bitter finish. This one doesn’t quite get as dry as some of the better west coast examples, but it is a really tasty brew and enjoyable to drink. Really good stuff. This brewery continues to impress.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear deep copper with a thin foamy white cap. Nice nose of leafy hop resins, a wee bit of lemon peel, and nice grapefruit zest. Crisp and bright flavor with grapefruit peel and zest right up front, but not terribly bitter, just balancing and crisp. Big sticky grapefruity hoppiness with a cara-biscuit bready sweet background with some leafy resins.

Can thanks to Andrew Rohne. This beer is great. Tropical fruit is all over the place. Of course, grapefruit, but some mango, pineapple, lemmon, and lime too. Great shit!

Taste poured from a bomber on the bus at the BeerCraft 2nd Anniversary Party in August (based on notes): Grapefruit aroma, some grapefruit and blunt bitter flavors, bitter, oily medium bodied, finishes a bit sweet. Thanks EdHops from norcal beer geeks for sharing!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can... Strong citrus aroma - grapefruit for sure, but that’s not all. Peels from a medley of citrus fruits. Medium-bodied with buoyant carbonation. The flavor tilts far into the bitter side of balance, but abundant medium-roast malts make their presence known. Bittersweet, rindy finish. Can shipped my way by StFun!
