Nice dark copper color with minimalistic head. Very slight lacing throughout.
Heavy hop character in the nose, especially the grapefruit. However this is an undertone of more floral scents.
The hops in this are as subtle as a brick passing through a plate glass window. Right after the initial assault of hops, however, a nice malt counter balance comes into play. Finishes pleasantly bitter without being overbearing.
The is medium carbonation here, but it doesn't get in the way and actually adds to character of the beer.
Overall, very very good.
Serving type: on-tap

T - Crackery malt, with a strong hop bitterness.

3.31/5 rDev -8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber, with a thick, foamy head; nice persistence and quite a few strands of lace
Smell: Toffee overwhelms, with vanilla and herbal tones in the back; a hint of pine
Taste: Toffee and vanilla, up front, with apple and a husky, grainy bitterness building in the middle; subtle hints of pine blend with the sweeter tones to bring together the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation
Overall: I am less than enthused about this beer; way too sweet for my palate and the mouthfeel is too thick, as well
Thanks, fredmugs, for the opportunity
