Pours a clear deep golden color, with a frothy one inch ivory head that slowly dissipates, leaving spotty sheets of lacing.
Grapefruit, dank cannabis, resin, and pine form the initial aroma. There's a toasted caramel malt backbone. Earthy, minerally notes emerge as it warms, along with a hint of floral hops.
Flavor is fairly bitter and very resiny. Minerally, earthy tones dominate, with underpinnings of grapefruit and pine adding complexity. The slightly sweet, toasted malt backbone weaves throughout, providing respite from the bitter hop barrage.
Body is moderate and smooth, with carbonation a touch on the high side, and moderate alcohol warmth.
Very earthy, resiny, and bitter. Definitely not for the faint of hop. Unfortunately, it's not my cup of tea, but it's fairly interesting. Wish the citrus flavor were more pronounced.
