pour is a clear amber-orange with a medium size egg-shell head, and excellent lacing.

smell is grapefruit, touch of caramel, nuts, some citrus, and a touch of pine.

taste is creamy, grapefruit hops, pine, some caramel, a roatiness, touch of citrus, some nuts, and a little sweetness comes through, ends very bitter.

22oz Bottle . A hazy dark copper color pour with a lasting medium sized offwhite head leaving lots of sticky lacing behind , some yeast floaties swimming about , medium carbonation . Aroma is earthy , with lots of resionus and sweet pine notes , a little citrus , and a deep malty sweetness . Flavor is big and malty , quite sweet up front like brown sugar, and honey , earthy , with loads of piny and spicy hops , a little citrus but mostly resinous bitter hops , nice high level of bitterness , with a long hoppy finish ,slightly chalky at times . I found it to be quite drinkable and fairly good but no where near worth the $9 I paid for it , not even close .
