Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a clear golden color with a two finger head that rapidly recedes back to a relatively stable 1cm lid, minimal lacing is left behind on the glass. Body and carbonation are on the lighter side of medium strength.

Smells of Pine resin, grapefruit, assorted citrus rind bouquet, and a touch of toffee malt. Tastes of a good even blend of citrus peel, some dank and resinous hopping, caramel malt, and lightly of Simcoe-styled onion / garlic combo. Has an aspirin / medicinal bittering finish with some rising heat from booze.
