look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Glass: Nonic pint glass

Appearance: Dark amber ish orange. Thin white head that dissipated very quickly.

Smell: strong grapefruit with a slight sweetness underneath. Not much going on in the aroma.

Taste: Strong hoppyness initially. Nice balance of hops and malts. Hops flavor comes in and out, starts off strong then fades into malts, and then comes back in the finish.

Mouthfeel: thin almost watery, very light bodied.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- One finger head that leaves very quickly. Amber body with high clarity.

S- Amber malts, subtle smells. Nothing great though.

T- Stale malts, caramel flavors, some earthy hops. Average.

M- Light, watery. Semi-dry finish.

O- Not an impressive beer.
