look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a true amber color with a very sparse head that fades quickly. Very fast moving carbonation (bubbly looking).

At first the smell of caramel takes over the grapefruit hops, biscuit, light raisin and barely present spiciness.

Very crisp and smooth tasting with a clean pine, fig, grapefruit and deep caramel play off one another to create a fairly complex dance in a sea of medium carbonation.

Feels medium bodied full of flavors that don't overwhelm rather lend complexity to each other to enhance the mouthfeel of this really good beer.

This is a must try. You may like it, you may not. You should pick this one up and give it a shot!

Damn Tasty!
