Poured a little cloudy with a third of the glass full of frothy, bubbly, white foam. Retention was good and the lacing was sticky and good throughout.
Aroma has a nice profile. Citrus but orange like notes. The grapefruit profile I was expecting wasn't as pronounced as it should have been.
Taste actually has the hops up front. Orange is pleasant with other tropical fruit flavors. Finishes fruity with some mellow sweetness. There is also a subtle spicy presence that adds to the complexity.
A medium body with medium carbonation that are both well fit to the beer.
A really good drinking beer. The fruitiness, sweetness, and slight spice blend well to almost a perfect balance. A delightful surprise. Enjoy!
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
