Pours a pale brown with lots of fizz. The head is large and frothy, and breaks down into large bubbles moderately fast.
First sip: strong taste of grapefruit up front moderated by a nice malt taste. There is a lot of hops taste following, and a long lingering hoppy after-taste. A *very* long lingering after-taste. Not as strong in hops as the Sierra Nevada Torpedo but it is substantial. Nice beer burp. Mouth-feel is dry and a little fizzy.
This is an excellent hot afternoon's quaff. It may be a little too hoppy for some, but I like it. Interestingly, it retains its flavour as the glass warms. Normally ales and lagers get worse.
