2012-04-21. Dark orange amber body witha small frothy off-white head. 3+ Interesting aroma, citrus with a twang/funk, grapefruit, pink grapefruit, pithy citrus. 7+ Flavour is similar, modest bitter citrus hops, sort of a tangy character, really interesting character to the hops. 7+ Smooth average bodied palate, light carbonation. 3+ One I would like to revisit and explore more fully.
