I called this one "One Armed Bandit" before I had even had a taste, because I honestly had no idea how it would turn out. I screwed up so many things during the brewing process, I was convinced it would be a throwaway. Didn't sanitize properly, didn't measure properly, introduced a couple new steps to my process... It was a little nerve-wracking.

Like those jangling, flashy pocket raiders in Vegas though, sometimes you hit a hot streak. This beer is the reason I brew. Huge citrus hop aroma, big grapefruit on the tongue with initial sweetness, and then a nice long bitter finish. Full bodied, strong, and just plain good. No doubt I'll be making this again.
