Nonic pint served up at the brewery - my first 3F.

Pours deep amber with a 1-2F off white head. Great lacing!

Good balance in the aromas - nice mix of earth, caramel malts, and citrusy hops.

Flavors are virtually all hop-forward. Grapefruit skin leads the way, with some orange pith, and kiss lemon zest. Could've used a touch more sweetness for my taste, but he'll, I'm a sweet tooth. MF is awesome ... Clean, and crisp as hell for the ABV.

Killer APA, no doubt
