4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Hopleaf. Pours clear light amber with a foamy, slightly off-white head. Aroma is huge amounts of graprefruit; just incredible. Aroma also has notes of other fruits (citrus and tropical) and a touch of pine. Taste has a lovely balanced bitterness, with notes of grapefruit pith and rind, tropical fruits, hops and some light sweetness. Finish is clean and bright with a nice bitter bite. Really great stuff.

Beautiful pour the aroma hits you immediately full of piney hops. Chewy nice on the front not the best on the finish. Still another good choice from 3F. A little cellar time is probably a good call..Recommended !

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
An ultra tropical aroma with fresh yellow grapefruit dominating the nostrils. Very yellow with a golden head. The flavor is more astrigent than expected, with plenty of CO2, but as crisply hoppy as a balanced beer can get. Easy drinking with very present hops. An easy win, but I did find it to ’pale’ in comparison to gumballhead... and to anyone who says they favor this over two hearted, just don’t whack anybody while you’re waving your three handed flag. This beer really, really rocks... but I do think it’s pretty hyped. I’ll blind taste it when I get the chance and check back in.
