RedSox2004 (1578) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 27, 2011
On tap at The Daily Pint. Pured hazy amber/orange with a nice cream-white two-finger head with terrific lacing. Strong sharp citrus hops aromas, mostly grapefruit with some orange and lemon. Grapefruit also dominated the palate, but enough honey and caramel sweetness to cut into the bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, nice carbonation and a clean crisp finish.
