Aroma: Crisp bold hops. Grapefruit citrus, pine, clean lighter malts. Mild smokey and roasty notes.

Appearance: Deep copper. Somewhat clear, but lots of particles in suspension, some large but mostly small. Pours a barely off-white head, moderate height. Leaves a coarse layer of foam after the main body of the head dissipates. Lots of lacing.

Taste: More malt than expected from the aroma. Sweet grapefruit, very crisp and refreshing. Mild cinnamon spice. Some darker malts. Aftertaste is pine and sweet malt.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body. Nice and slick. Slightly drying from the hops. Barely-there carbonation.

Overall: Wonderful grapefruit flavor. Nice malt flavor to add some balance. Lots to savor, but also smooth and easy to drink.

Pours a copper color with a small white head that forms a nice lacing down the glass.
Nose is cascade hops, sweet malt, and light/fruity alcohol notes. Taste is sweet malt upfront followed by the fruity notes of cascade hops along with some citrus aftertaste. Body is on the medium side.
