Poors a dark amber, with rich red undertones. Head was a light caramel.
Smells of musky hops, slight grapefruit, and blood orange. Perhaps some mango undertones, raison, and spice.
Tastes vegetal, pine resin, some grapefruit rind, raisons, and dried dark fruits. Some caramel present, and some thing I can't quite put my finger on. It finishes with a quick sharp bitterness that fades into more of a sensation than a flavor. Overall, I would recommend this to those who like to question what they are tasting.
