Pours a very dark cloudy orange, almost a light brown. A slight white foaming head. Very slight hoppy wheat aroma with a hint of caramel, not getting much from it. Medium mouthfeel, seems very shallow upfront, then going into a hoppy bite, with a caramel malty finish.

Pours a slightly hazy, watery brown with a frothy quarter inch cream head that lingers.

Muted citrus, resin, and toasted, nutty caramel malt form the aroma. There's a hint of chocolate.

Grapefruit pith and lemon underlie a strong, nutty malt backbone, becoming a touch resiny and bitter in the dry finish.

Body is moderate to a bit thin, with moderate carbonation and a fairly stringent finish.

Hops and malt are fairly well balanced. The astringent finish is somewhat offputting. I'm not a huge lemon fan, but the malt backbone is nice.
