Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Really nice grapefruit hop nose, some pine, and a bit of tropical fruit. Hints of melon and lemon zest. Biscuit malt base. There’s a nice fruit character to the flavor, too. Big grapefruit, tropical fruit, and some peaches. Melon, lemon zest, and pine. Moderate bitterness, some hints of malt sweetness. bhensonb (16137) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Tap at Sacramento Brewing Co. Pours a copper/amber with a rather frothy beige head that laces. Pine aroma. Maybe some citrus. Medium body with almost creamy carbonation. Flavor is pine and/or grapefruit rind, and the malt is hardly noticeable at first. This is a good bitter beer, that shows a bit of florality and maltiness as the main bitter drains away. The florality comes forth with time. Bottom line: it’s bitter. Really good. Ratman197 (15762) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2012

Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, pine and grapefruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering pine finish. slowrunner77 (13409) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
"a soft body and a good amounts of fragrant grapefruit/citrus hops in this one, with enough of a malt backbone for decent balance. the finish wasn’t quite up to par for whatever reason but the flavor and aroma were quite good."
