12oz bottle into tumbler, bottled June 26, 2012
Pours an extremely rich and dark red with a small but sticky off-white/orange head. Lots of glorious lacing. Smell is nearly equally malt earthiness and citrus hops, most interesting. Taste is rich and malty before the hops kick in with tons of grapefruit bitterness and dominate the majority of the taste. Finishes with a sticky bitterness. Quite heavy in body due to all the malt, med carb.
Super malty IPA/DIPA with a gorgeous color, though there is some clash in the nose I am not crazy about. Heavy body makes this a one per siting sort of beer for me. So one dimensionally malty that for a second I catch a tinge of almost smoky porter malt.
