Grim Reaper's Eulogy
To describe this 'big fella' is to say, how should I put what Bud would be if it had a big brother ale.  Though the unusual citrusy grape/fruit like twang at the end of each sip was an unexpected surprise.  It was served in a tall, symmetrical cylinder of a glass that resembled a rather large shotgun shell, and had the HR brewery logo on the outside along with ml (milliliter) markings.  Some kind of science beaker! 

Very enjoyable and refreshing on an 80 degree day here on the sun-coast of Florida.
