12 Oz can poured into a tulip glass

A- Black in the can with red around the edges. A one finger off tan head.

S- The nose is extremely hoppy. The hop profile in mine is quite aged, I can tell mine isnt too fresh. There is some pineapple, overly ripened fruits. I can smell the carafa malts and some caramel.

T- There is a slight bitterness up front followed up by a roasted malt. I get a bit of the carafa malt as well. The hop flavor is not as strong as I would like, there is a slight grapefruit. The hop profile in my beer has definitely faded with age.

M- This is a good sized beer and has a nice feel to it. Its sticky and only a little bitter. Cleanish finish.

O- This beer is only ok, I can tell mine isn't fresh and I think that may have a lot to do with it
