look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange body. Nice white head. Thin collar and a single surface wisp.

Smell - Pine and grapefruit. An herbal component too. Toasty malt.

Taste - Grapefruit hops. Less of the herbal character. A little grassy, though. Sweet caramel. Toasty malts. Finishes musty and bitter.

Mouthfeel - Musty and bitter. Kinda sweet, but not too bad.

Overall - Less good as it warms. Too toasty.

Serving type: bottle
