Got one of these in a swap with Jim. Poured with a golden red color and a short lasting head. Pleasant floral aroma with a citrus background. Strong citrus, grapefruit hop flavor with a good malt balance. I thought I was picking up some nutty or toasty notes when chilled, but this faded as the beer warmed and the American hop character took over. This is an easy drinking ale with plenty of great taste to cover its relatively high alcohol content. I opened the bottle after work tonight and found myself wishing I had another to go with diner. Very nice! Thanks for sharing.
