Pink Killer

12 oz single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Kraig tried to talk me out of this, but I KNEW that I would like it and I was glad that I went with my gut on this one.
The beer pours a hazed, peach/pinkish color with a better than expected head. There is even a tiny bit of lace and some half decent retention!
Nose has a slightly medicinal acidity.
The taste is that of a lightly sweetened grapefruit with lots of decent fruit flavor. The beer drinks incredibly easily and is really refreshing. Light tart fruit notes give a nice sweet and sour combo and here is even a more “beer-like” malty aftertaste and finish.
I actually like this a LOT, and that’s in relation to my love of grapefruit juice but also because I find it very refreshing and tasty. Is it a classic? Perhaps not, but I like it and I don’t care who knows. So there!
