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!
