The beer pours a clear, coppery amber with a foamy off-white head that laces. The nose is citrusy, caramely, and metallic - little in the way of hoppy aromatics. However, the beer drinks with good balance between the potently bitter hops and honey-like malt backbone. Though I think the beer's malt profile is on point, the crushing, repetitive insult from the hops make this beer's finish unenjoyable - a factor that improves as the beer warms. This beer is medium bodied with abrasive hops, exceptional malt sweetness/grain flavor, and a lingering grapefruit rind bitterness. This is a tasty hopped up ale that's a bit overly bitter, but has tremendous flavor.
