Nose
Deep, resonant grapefruit aromas.
Palate
Sweet at first; bitter on the swallow, but the overriding flavours are zingy, zesty, pungent grapefruit notes from the American hops. It's really a citrus overdose made bearable by the rounded malt support.
Finish
Dry and hoppy, with grapefruit flavours lingering on and on.
Comment
A bold, fresh-tasting, deep amber ale, although the intense hoppiness is rather demanding and will challenge a lot of drinkers.
