Clear amber/copper pour with a very small head that dissipates quickly. Very nice juicy grapefruit aroma. Flavor is big and bitter with lots of grapefruit and citrus backed with a mild spicy flavor. Can also taste just a hint of bread and caramel for a nice malty edge. Light bodied and drinks easy despite a strong bitterness. Finishes with a lingering juicy citrus flavor.
