Good beer, nothing to special here though. Not a fan of grapefruit, so take that into account.

12oz bottle. pours a nice copper color with a small off white head. A floral aroma with a caramel ending. Huge hope taste with a perfect soft carbonation. This a brew that is very tasty and the 6% ABV makes it great to enjoy all night long.

Pours an amber color with little white head. No lacing. Happy and slightly bitter at first. Has a nice citrusy flavor with hints of pine. Great carbonation and overall a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A cloudy copper color with a thin head that leaves a thick film of lacing. At the first taste the citrus jumps out at you, hops present themselves nicely as the beer warms. A really good beer that I wouldn’t mind trying again.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
There is nothing bad to say about this beer. Big malty taste with cascade hops fairly gushing across the mouth followed by a nice dry finish and a very slightly chewy aftertaste. A truly great beer.

Tap. Beautiful color. Aroma was of citrus and honey suckle flowers. Nice head without a ton of lacing. Good hoppy crisp refreshing flavor. Definitly some notes of alcohol. Fairly strong malt covered up nicely by the refreshing hop. Dry and bitter after palate.

The true king of beers. On tap at the Maproom, Chicago. Hoppy and I love the dry bitter finish these types of beers leave. Oily and blood orange body. All hail the king.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An amazing amount of "things" are going on in this brew. Almost overwhelming. Mix of slight malt and citrus flavors. Don’t let this one approach room temp or get a warm pour.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big citrusy aroma, especially grapefruit and pine. Some caramel malt in there. Darkish amber in the glass, really clear. A perfectly balanced flavor, very impressive. Bright hops, heavy on the citrus, medium malt presence. Extremely drinkable for sure, just a perfect APA.
