Appearance – This shows the requisite orangish-brown color with a nice, moderate head that left some decent lacing.
Smell – The hops are huge here at the nose but not like a dry-hopped beer. There is some strong grapefruit, fresh pine, and a light floral character. The malts are almost absent but should step things up at the taste.
Taste – The malt does take it up one small notch here with some added caramel sugar but hops dominate the flavor. It’s a very strong grapefruit taste with a pine that’s almost pepperminty and lots of bitter leaf notes.
Mouthfeel – This is a big medium-bodied with bone wrenching bitterness. I like the thick, slick feel of the beer but was a bit put off with the bitterness in this style.
Drinkability – This is definitely a sipping beer that was a little blunt for my preference. I think the balance missed the mark but otherwise it wasn’t bad.
