4/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a brown-edged black coloring with a tall, dense, foamy, clingy, off-white head that coats the glass as you drink. Aromas of dank and resinous hops forward, roasted notes in the backbone, hints of coffee, and citrus highlights throughout. Very balanced for such an aromatic nose. Flavors are roasted and bitter forward, with a blast of cut grass, pine resin, and tart grapefruit notes. Very balanced, with hints of char and roast throughout. The body is full and robust, but fairly light, too, keeping the drinkability up. Roasted and bitter aftertaste, with lingering citrus notes in there as well. Solid, balanced brew. The finish is smooth and slick, with a roasted and slightly bitter linger. The slightly elevated ABV is completely masked with the smooth body and full palate. Great brew!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance of very dark brown but not quite black with a nice creamy colored head. The smell was full of hops and bitter fruit like lemon and grapefruit. The taste was similar with a lot of hops making a grapefruit taste, but also a nice lingering sour taste, not bad, just like a sour pink grapefruit flavor. Very interesting. The mouthfeel was also nice as it was not overly thick like I thought it might be. Overall very good.
