Appearance: Clear, copper color with one finger of head that fades with rings of lace.

Aroma: Toasted malt, a little bready, lots of citrus hops.

Taste: A quick flash of malt then right to a bitter blast. Lots of grapefruit rind, pine, a little resinous. The finish comes quick with lingering bitterness.

The Rest: A pretty decent hop bomb. Body is on the thin side of medium, and it could use a bit more malt to help balance out the bitterness.

Pours a medium dirty golden brown color with a white head and lacing. Slight chill haze. The aroma is citrusy, grapefruit like and has a touch of nutty malts. Sweet, bitter, hoppy, nutty, and pretty decent overall. Just a mild IPA with more of a brown ale base than some examples.
