A - Pours a golden amber color with medium murkiness/clarity and very bubbly. 1 inch white head that retains well, with lots of lacing.

S - A fantastic mixture of hops and sweet citrus fruits (orange and lemon peel, passion fruit, and grapefruit).

T - A sweet front is quickly followed by a fruitiness that ends with a very strong bitter aftertaste.

M - A medium body that does not create a strong burn from either carbonation or alcohol.

O - The smell is great, and the taste is sweet at first but the bitter aftertaste is very powerful, maybe a bit overpowering.

A: Clear; amber color with reddish highlights; foamy head
S: Grapefruit, candy shell (candy sugar), dank, wet dog
M: Medium body, smooth, almost creamy
T: Strongly bitter, notes of fruit rind, dank. I thought it tasted like a cross between Bear Republic's Racer 5 and Ballast Point's Sculpin
