Pours an opaque, deep gold, producing 2 fingers of frothy, somewhat lasting, white head that leaves thin webs & streaks of lace. Aroma is thin caramel malt forward with a thin floral, tropical fruit, grapefruit & pine hop profile. Taste is a more balanced inverse mix of floral, grapefruit flesh & pith & pine hops, with the sweet caramel coming through in nearly equal quantity. Finishes caramel, pine, bitter & nicely peppery but transitioning to a lasting bitter & astringent aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, moderate carbonation, prickly, bitter & drawing.

Way over carbonated and has an off taste. Rather boring.
