Sampled from a 22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light orangish-copper with a big bubbly and long lasting white head - very attractive brew. Hoppy and sweet aroma with grapefruit, lemon citrus, pine, and some doughiness. Initial hit of citrusy hops overcome by a wave of sweetness. Relatively strong alcohol presence and unrelenting candied sweetness throughout deduct royally from the fairly complex hop profile which becomes more piney and resinous as it warms. Moderately bitter for the style and medium bodied. Finishes with grapefruit, toasted malt, & sweet alcohol. Marginal.
