A: Pours a dark brown body with a one inch, tan head. Excellent retention until the finish of the beer with solid lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Smells like sweet grapefruit with some bitter, floral undertones.

T: A strong, hop taste with a sweet, dry grapefruit aftertaste. Slightly bitter, but balanced out by the sweet, grapefruit taste.

M: Fairly full-bodied and smooth. A little thin, but overall, still nice and smooth.

D: Definitely a drinkable beer. An excellent balance of hops and malts. The hops are more evident in the beginning, but become much more balanced out towards the finish.

Appearence: Reddish amber color, very clear, big, foaming head when poured, which took quite some time to fade, leaving lace behind. Smell: Massively heavy hops. Some caramalt malt aroma is in the background if you look for it. Taste: a malty sweetness battles with a heavy resinous hop soup, and eventually loses out. Mouthfeel is tingly, with hop bitterness finishing out. Drinkability: An aggressive, memorable beer. I'm not really a big hophead, but this is very well-made and succeeds at what it aims for.
