A-Pours a slightly hazy, deep amber hue. Chill haze. Mild, tan head sits atop the beer and fizzles off a bit leaving wavy lace.
S-Balanced and rather full on both ends of the spectrum. Lots of grapefruit and candied orange hoppiness. A bit dose of caramel, too. Solid pine hops. Not very complex but it works.
T-The hops are fairly tame here. They start with subtlety and finish with a rising medley of flavors like: grapefruit, grass, lemons, light mint, pine and candied oranges. Caramel and toffee and dense breadiness. Very balanced and the flavors taste more unique than the aroma.
M-A bit full and chewy. Softer bitterness. A bit of a sipper.
O/D-This I have wanted to try for a while. Psyched to see it in bottles. This was a bit of a disappointment, though. A bit too balanced for me and I don't think I'm too enamored with the hop profile here. In the end it's pretty good beer but I didn't live up to my lofty expectations.
