12oz to ale glass, pours a coppery orange shade with a creamy off white head eventually fading

smells of sweet biscuity, super grapefruit hop bomb creaminess, yum

taste is creamy and sweet, syrupy, great hop presence leaning on the grapefruit kind, molasses, biscuit, caramel, toffee, bitterness wrestles with the sweetness and balances out but bitterness prevails in the end

mouthfeel is of lingering hop astringent dryness, sweet and sassy, heavy weight, alcohol is masked professionally, an amazing beer overall!
delicious!
