Nice beer, but pretty typical for the style. Slight bit of cardboardy oxidation.

Very resiny, grassy, dank aroma with big citrus notes of grapefruit and tangerine. Fairly balanced between the contrasting genres. Biscuity malt is subtle.

Flavor reveals more malt support, slightly sweet, which counters the initial sharp muddled citrus that leads into resiny bitterness at the finish. Notes of pine emerge in the aftertaste.

Hops certainly dominate and run the gamut of variety, albeit lacking in my beloved tropical fruit notes. Nice malt presence, though, which supports well. The finish is just very astringent.
