3.53/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Medium brown with a large off white head.

S: Malt with some grapefruit aroma. I'm really note getting a whole lot on the smell of this one, what I do get is grapefruit, and maybe a little light citrus juice.

T: Nicely balanced, although the scales tip to a little malt forward. Toffee and brown bread, as well as grapefruit and orange peel.

M: Medium bodied with fairly high carbonation. I think the carbonation makes this feel a little lighter than it is, you can definitely feel the body going towards syrupy, but the carbonation keeps it from getting there.

O: Overall pretty good, but the aroma is a little weak. Still, tastes good, and is interesting enough to get again.

Pours a clear dark copper body with a finger-tall off-white head with good retention. Aromas of carnival candy corn with a whiff of citrus fruit stand and piney pile of firewood. Flavors are more restrained some of the steroided versions of this style, but are very very good. The citrus and evergreen resin are apparent from beginning to end, but the super malty caramel middle gives this beer an excellent balance. I wish I'd bought a bought a six-pack.
