nice copper color with big fluffy head. A very good looking beer.
Smell is of sweet malt which is overshadowed by a bitter and citrus - some lemon, lime and grapefruit aromas.
Taste is much the same. Great balance, yet big, bold flavors. The beer is alternately sweet and bitter. Hops play a huge role, but there is always a malt backbone. As the beer warms, the alcohol becomes very evident.
This is a great beer. Tons of bold flavor. A huge alcohol kick as well. Seek this out....
