I honestly forgot how good this beer is.16oz draft in a tall pint at the Hyatt SFO. Dark reddish brown with a creamy off white head. Smell is sweet goodness. More malt than hops coming through for me.
Taste is so balanced. Huge malt upfront followed by tongue sucking bitterness. Grapefruit and citrus, followed up with earthy maltiness. I honestly pick up no heat at all.
This is such a distinctive beer. I really can't compare it to anything else and I like that. To me, this is a world class beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Beautiful color, thick white head
Citrusy and spicy, lots of alchohal
Very bitter, lemon peel, grapefruit and spice
Full body, medium carbonation, slightly crisp and a little oily at the same time.
This beer leaves an impression with its boldness, but the bitterness is very strong and the balance is lacking, the flavors don't blend as well as I like. Happy I bought but won't but again for awhile.
