3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is cloudy golden-orange with almost no head.
S: First thing to hit the nose is a very strong lemon smell, but it’s almost artificial. That said, there is a really nice hoppiness to this beer. Plenty of noble hops giving a nice spice and earthiness. A bit of yeast and a decent bread note.
T: Like the aroma, lots of spiciness and floral notes from the hops. There is, unfortunately, still that fake, sugary lemon flavor. Plenty of malt in the form of bread gives this beer a decent sweetness.
M: Medium bodied with a low level of carbonation.
O: Nowhere near as good as the Grapefruit version. The lemon flavor really ruined it.
