A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high beige head that only died down a little and never completely faded away.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of grapefruit and pine resin hops in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of grapefruit and pine resin hops along with a moderate amount of accompanying bitterness that particularly linger through the finish. There are some hints of caramel malts. The pine resin seems to become stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels a little more than medium-bodied and crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Considering its strength, this beer is rather drinkable because the alcohol is well masked from the taste.

Amber color with white head and lots of lacing in tulip glass.

Smell is pungent grapefruit, sweet malts, and caramel.

Taste follows smell pretty well. Sweet malt backbone with musty pungent grapefruit. Grapefruit hoppiness lingers on the posterior palate long after a sip.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly dry. Good carbonation.

Overall this is good. Still a little heavy on the malt and caramel flavor for me.

Poured from the bottle a deep ruby red with massive sediment, hazy, and small white head. This smells of strong grapefruit and pine, really engulfing the nose. Straight up slam of hops and bitter, with no other flavors really coming out. Very one-dimensional and slightly disappointing, especially for the price. Improves as it warms up and the sweet toffee malts take some character, but outrageous amounts of sediment. Great aroma that the flavor just didn't live up to. At the same price point, I'll got for Devil Dancer instead.
