Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

Pours a hazy burnt orange with a 2" thick off-white head. Big wall of lacing halfway up glass.

Huge grapefruit and pineapple nose with bread, spice and pine.

Quick initial blast of citrus that quickly fades to bitter citrus rind and dank pine.

Love that nose but the bitterness is more than expected at first sip. Thick and creamy feel.
