Bought this in August in Portland and brought it back to Vancouver Island. Forgot about in the basement until this weekend. What a nice surprise when I cracked open this little beauty. A mouthful of elegant hops and bitter citrus that permeates the taste buds. Delicious!

Im a litle late getting this, but this bottle is delicious regardless of its age. It pours cloudy orange with average head and carbonation. The aroma is grapefruiit/citrus and slightly sweet malt notes. The flavor hits hard with that citrus. Grapefruit, and then a lemon meringue, sweet finish. I liked this beer.
