A - Served an almost clear copper-brown color with a thin finger of off-white head. The head fades down leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - The aroma is a mix of sweet toasted caramel malts with lots of grapefruit and pine hops. Very nice hop aroma here.

T - Starts off with lots of piney hops and bitterness and a bit of sweet malt. Through the middle, grapefruit hops and more bitterness come through. The finish is a mix of grassy hops and a bit of sweet malts that lingers.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels smooth and very crisp. The beer feels quite dry and especially at the end where there is a nice bitter kick.

D - Very drinkable. Very nice strong and complex hop profile with just enough supporting malt flavor to balance.
