16oz can provided by UMNbeerhunter, thanks Joe! Poured into a Surly Darkness tulip.
A - Pours an almost ruby color, thick and rocky with 2.5 fingers worth of light tan head. Moderate retention lasting a couple minutes that leaves an intricate web of lacing behind.
S - Smell is heavy in citrus, especially grapefruit, but a good amount of orange comes through as well. A sparse amount of pine makes an appearance, but overall very hoppy and bitter, yet refreshing.
T - Taste is bitter from the start, bringing the grapefruit to the forefront. This beer does boast a rather supportive malt backbone, however, which balances the taste midway through before finally finishing pretty bitter as well. Caramel and toffee mix well with the hops to keep everything balanced.
M - The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderately low carbonation. Pretty sticky from the hop resins, this beer coats the mouth and lingers with a long, bitter finish.
D - Drinkability is high. Although not a hop bomb, the balance helps this beer in the drinkability department. Supportive malts add a distinctive taste to this beer while drowning out the alcohol.
