look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle served in a Greenbush snifter.

A: Pours a semi clear ruby color with an off-white head forming on the pour. it recedes slowly to a thick cap and collar that leaves tons of splotchy lace down the glass.

S: Lots of bready malts, dried grass and raw honey. Candied grapefruit with a bitter pine as well.

T: Bready malts. Light citrus. Sweet grapefruit with a dried grass backing. Pretty sweet overall with a light bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level. slightly sticky mouthfeel.

O: A little sweet and malt forward for my liking. I've had the fresh from the brewpub and out of bottles and it still doesn't quite jive with me. Not bad, but not something I'd want to go after again.

So, I was at my local bottle shop and they had this in their pick six section. Oven been wanting to try it for a while now. Here it goes:

Appearance: reddish copper. Hazy with a off white head. Very heavy lacing on the glass. Really nice

Smell:citrus. Grapefruit, orange, and maybe some pine in there.

Taste: the best way I can describe it is like this: starts with the citrus hops, then a mellow honey taste. All of a sudden, the bitterness come crashing through. Wow! It's very crazy. I like it

Mouthfeel: almost stout like. Thick. But at the same time if can drink this on the deck in the summer. It's very pleasing to the senses

Overall: I like it a lot! It's not a beer I could drink a few of in one night, but a few bottles here and there. Very tasty!
