A - 1/2" beige head, excellent retention. Sheet of lace. Dark brown close to opaque.

S - Tangy citrus hop. Chocolate and sweet molasses. Cream.

T - Bitter grapefruit mingles with bitter roasted malt. Coffee. Nutty. Orange peel. Seems to have more hops than some IPA's.

M - Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Long, bitter,tangy finish.

D - Very good drinkability. Unique with athe hopload of an IPA and the roasty porter character.
