Poured form a 1pt 6oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - Reddish-brown color reminiscent of strong iced tea. The pour produced an off-white head that quickly gave way to a bubbly film. Spotty lacing throughout.

S - Malty, hoppy aroma. I definitly detected pine, grapefruit and butter in there. Very complex and intriguing.

T - The sweet maltiness and good amount of hop bitterness keep this ale well balanced. The presence of citrus and the high alcohol content give the finish a slight bite.

MF&D - Medium to full bodied ale. The oiliness of the hops really coated my mouth well and the malty sweetness made this one a lip smacker.
