This pours a black cola color with cocoa colored foam.

It's similar to a hoppy porter with grapefruit dankness rounding it out. Like a green hoppy porter.

The aroma has a squeeze of fresh grapefruit mixed with some pine needles.

It's like a burst of grapefruit pine with a bitter finish and a touch of resin with a roast complexity underlying it all.

This was a very tasty surprise! I would almost classify it as a Citrus Stout, oddly enough a good Citrus Stout. Roasted malt backbone, with a sour citrusy goodness on the palate. Works strangely well together. Got in a mix a six today and definitely will be picking up a sixer of it this weekend. Yummy stuff, cheers!
