Thanks for this bottle Fro.

Bottled 12/23/2009

Pours a brilliant light copper with a frothy white head atop. The foam settles after a minute or two and leaves a nice coating of sticky lace clinging to the walls of the glass. A small ring of foam remains around the edge of the glass and a tiny layer of white remains covering the top of the brew.

Wonderful hoppy aroma. Lots of grapefruit and mellow pine. Lemon and a hint of orange also come through. Malt makes itself known with a nice light and slightly sweet caramel note just slightly punching it's way through the great hop notes. I could smell this beer all day.

Smooth malty body with nice mellow caramel and a low carbonation allow the beer to slide across the tongue with ease. Then the star of the show arrives. The hops are wonderful. Sweet grapefruit is in abundance with a nice mellow and not bitter lemon co-mingled in. Just a hint of bitter pine and then bubble gum rounding out the flavor and riding out the aftertaste. As you sip more, the pine bitterness begins to start each sip out and then quickly give way to the fruity grapefruit and bubble gum.

Wonderfully balanced with huge aroma and flavor. I could drink this stuff all day.
