Served on tap in a pint

Appearance – The beer is deep copper color with a once finger head of white foam atop. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of sweeter caramel smells mixed with some fruity aromas of peach and pear. Along with these smells is some very lightly toasted malt smells and a decent showing of a pine and grassy aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter caramel and slightly bready taste. Upfront there is a moderately strong grapefruit hop flavor which increases in intensity as the taste moves on to the end. A little bit of a more roasted malt flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste, with it remaining overall relatively light. At the end a pine flavor also comes to the tongue along with a bit of an oddly off herbal hop flavor, which ends up leaving a slightly off dank hop flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on average to slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that was on the slightly lower side. Normally the thicker body and lower carbonation would have been great for the sweet, bread, and hop flavors of the brew, but due to the slightly off herbal flavor at the end, it actually turned out to be a harm to the brew.

Overall – If it wasn't for the somewhat off hop flavor encountered at the end of the taste, this would have been an alright brew, but with it it’s not one to go to.
