12oz bottle into a pint glass. packaged 9/28/16, so a little over 2 months old.

superb clear yellow amber body. thick off white head. excellent lacing.

faintly hoppy on the nose wit a slight mustiness.

very bitter. some grapefruit and piney flavors. decent malt background gives a hint of sweetness.

above medium on the mouth. tingly bitter grapefruit finish.

overall, an enjoyable drink. might be a bit too bitter for a session.
