A - Dark amber color with a quarter inch head that receeded to an inconsistent cap and some chunk bubble sheets on the side.

S - Malt, some citrusy cascade hops that border on grapefruit.

T - Tastes a little bit skunked, but seems to me that's more of an APA thing than anything, although this is a little more than I like. Light caramel malt backbone with a touch of grapefruit and fades into a long lasting bitterness that turns sour. Better than average, but not tons.

M - Medium bodied, and moderate carbonation. Lighter and more carbonated would have worked better for this style.

D - Not super high given what the ABV is. Needs to be lighter with a touch more carbonation. Pitched as a refreshing summer beer, but not quite there.

On tap at Rock Bottom...Pours a super dark gold, hints of copper, light tan head, really good retention and lacing...Aroma is light all around, has some nice light hops that have a very dusky earthiness quality to them. Its something new and refreshing...The ttaste is decent, brings some hops which is rare for a RB beer. Light grass and flowers.

Overall, pretty good, probably your best bet at RB.
