  • Pours clear with an enormous, frothy, off-white head. Retention is outstanding while thickening up. Lacing is thick, sticky, and everywhere.

    Aroma is full of hops that are mainly grapefruit citrus. Caramel and bread malts are backing it up in a healthy manner.

    Taste is really light compared to what I was expecting but there is a some big grapefruit hops and bitterness in the finish. Bread malt makes up the backbone.

    Medium or possibly lighter mouth feel with light carbonation, possibly making the beer feel smaller.

    Surprised that they packed such a high IBU without an unbalanced bitterness. Nicely done and greatly appreciated. Enjoy!
