A: Light, murky orange/amber. No head, little lace. Poured like water
S: First impression was "I'm in it to win it." A little tar, grapefruit, sweet smelling. Inviting to say the least.
F: Watery and bitter. Lasting faint bitter. Like I've been eating fruit loops.
T: All of the above. Juicy Fruit. Fruit Loops. A touch of grapefruit equal with tar blends 50/50. Fruity bitter with no unpleasant flavors. Almost juice like, pulp free juice.
O: So it seems this is well worth the ratings it's received. It's not as raw as SN Torpedo, but it seems what they went for they got in this one. Not too much of one or the other, and exceeding at everything. Glad my local now carries it.

Great smell right from open. Had one in a pint glass, and one straight from the can. Suggest the can.
