look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear red-copper color with a finger amount of head that holds very nicely. The lacing is also very good at sticking and holding to the glass.

Aroma: I picked up some orange-grapefruit from the American hops, but with some kind of funk-tang I can't identify.

Taste: Grapefruit comes through on the taste with some of that funk. A slight breadiness was easier to pickup when warmed up more. Hint of toffee like carmel. The bitterness is harsh on the tongue, distracts me from the flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and light body. Again the bitter harshness does something that seems to affect the feel.

Overall: The harsh bitterness was unfavorable and the hop aroma was less than expected. The malt character was difficult to pickup until warmer. For the style it seems a little off with a few things.

Poured from a 22 oz brown bomber into a clear glass mug. No clear freshness date. Purchased by my brother Greg at a Minneapolis-area bottle shop. Reviewed from notes.

A: Dark copper-red with 1-2 fingers of pretty rocky, off-white head with good retention and ample lacing.

S: Decent aroma with grapefruit and honeysuckle combining with some lemon and floral notes. The maltiness doesn't have a lot of character in the aroma. There is a "homebrew" tanginess to the aroma.

T: The tanginess follows through to the flavor as well. The beer is not well enough attenuated and leaves too many sweet malt sugars which give this beer a tangy, light lemonade flavor with much more bitterness. I think this beer would be a lot better with less bitterness, namely less early- and mid-boil hop additions and more late-boil hop additions to increase the hop flavor without the big bitterness. There is also a midl vegetal flavor that would also improve with less early hopping. THe maltiness is mildly crackery but is not interesting enough to carry the big bitterness.

M: Average carbonation with medium-light medium body and not enough dryness.

O: Not a good or great example of the style, merely middle of the road. Has some attenuation problems and drinks like an average homebrew not a refined craft beer.
