Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a ruby-copper color with a bright white, filmy head. Very clingy. Nose of caramel sweetness and tang, with a bitter hops presence. Very floral and bitter. Flavors of caramel sweet in the backbone, with grapefruit highlights and a steady dose of hops overtones, both resinous and floral. Tangy, bitter aftertaste with a touch of sweetness still in there. Dry, bitter finish. Very solid, and I made sure to take a growler of this home with me.
