“Lemon and lemongrass, as in the aroma, with amplified—as in cranked up to level 11—grapefruit. Moderate malt sweetness, touch of resinous pine, moderately dank, strong bitterness, light grassy notes. Lovely creamy mouthfeel! Perhaps the spearmint character heightens the perception, but there is a briskness and lightness to this beer that is unique and quite welcomed. There is still a prominent piney character to balance the spearmint, but it doesn’t overpower.”
