Dark ruby color that is crisp and hazy with lots of lace.. A/T piney hop, peach, pie crust, caramel, toffee, citrus.. Slight notice of alcohol.. Good balance with an edge to the bitterness.. Medium body.. Good beer

One of my favorites. Very hard hitting and flavorful. Hated it when I first tried it, but bought it a few more times as my pallet grew and now I love it.

Definitely a big beer. It's very bitter but the malts even it out and it has just enough grapefruit in the aftertaste to keep it well-balanced. I'm getting hints of dark fruits on the aftertaste as well. This would be a great beer to have with a hearty German food meal.
