L: Burnt orange, copper colored beer. Very mild haze, nearly opaque, though definitely not turbid.
S: Light aroma, malts are somewhat doughy with cereal character. Hops are herbacious and resinous on the nose, slightly piney.
T: Has a bitter punch up front. Hits hard but finishes soft. Combo pine and grapefruit bitterness. Malts on the finish with biscuit character. Actually quite nice flavor.
F: A bit heavy, and not quite an easy drinker. I think the body plus the bitter bite upfront take away from drinkability a bit. That being said flavor is great and has nice balance. Great malt presence.
O: Absolutely a beer I would revisit. Will look out for it next time its fresh in stores.

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.
