This poured a hazed honey orange with golden hues and a honey brown tint. Lovely with a fat enough head of tan foam that fell off and left a film on top. Noe i hops. Bright grapefruit and some leafy herbal. A big malt with brown sugar and honey and soft bread. The taste is sumptuous. It's sweet but not cloying. It has grapefruit that is tart and pithy and has the peel. The hops are leafy and wide. The soft bread and brown sugar all come together for a malt that is sweet and delectable with a bit of sitckiness to it. Earthiness gives way in this to a firm herbal and a bit of alcohol that grazes the back palate. The finish is dry and there is an ample bitter to leave you with a bit of resiny coating on the mouth and time to taste all those tremendous flavors again while a bit of spice lingers at the back palate.

Dark amber in the Old Fashioned glass with minimal foam. Mouthfeel is quite sudsy, the stuff seems to erupt when you take a sip.

A little woodsy, cedar taste Quite dry. This is even less sweet than the typical double IPA. Very alcohol tasting. Hot and astringent. Quite bitter aftertaste. I don't taste any of the advertised "citrusy" hops, unless they mean a slash of grapefruit pith. This delivers the booze, but it is so un-malty it's a rocky road down the throat.

Great packaging, like what the English would call a "nip." From the 8.4 oz can purchased in the four-pack purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.
