The beer comes in a dark amber.

The aroma is very muted, despite a 2 week old bottle. Sweet hop candy, piney and resiny.

The flavor follows with sweet grapefruit candy in the front. Resin, spicy hops. A huge middle malt backbone onto a very little bitterness of woody hops.

Almost like an American barleywine, this is very disappointing.
