Poured from a bomber into a wine glass.
A - Pours a hazy light amber with a patchy slightly off white head.
S - Big grapefruit aroma with some citrus and pine notes mixed in as well.
T - The taste more or less follows the aroma - big grapefruit and citrus flavors; also a touch asringent. No malt backbone to speak of here - just a hint, but it's not really balanced. Just big, bitter hops. The other flavors do come out a bit once the beer warms, but not a ton.
M - Medium bodied, feels a little oily and slightly less carbonated than I would like.
O - Overall, I wasn't super crazy about this. It's a good beer, but it might just be a bit much for me in the hop department. I'll probably give it another try in a year or two when I have a chance.
