A- Very near black. The head is thin. It holds at a slick. Leaves a couple rings of lacing.
S- The aroma leans heavily on hops. It has nice grapefruit and pine hops. Roasted malts are there but take a distant black seat.
T- The taste is more well rounded. I like it. Hoppy up front with grapefruit being the big note. Bitterness is there. Roasted malt shows up more and more as it warms. Slight coffee presence makes it more balanced.
M- Light body but night smooth carbonation. Easy drinking.
O- A decent beer that has good flavor and drinks easy. Passable but not extraordinary.
