Keg at Hanging Bat. Slightly hazy golden yellow pour, thin white head. Nice grapefruit, slight pine, barest pineapple, grassy hop nose. Big punchy grapefruit, slightly flinty, just a hint of sweet malts, big pine. Oily mouthfeel, long puckering grapefruit bitterness on the finish. A bit of a hop bomb, but very tasty.
