L: Dark orange, no foam, small lace, mild carbonation
S: Raisin. Not strong.
F: Mild foam. Dry finish. Bitter in front. Candy aftertaste.
T: Light to medium bitter. Slight grapefruit. Thin and candy like
O: Reminds me of JW Dundee Pale Ale. Pretty much the same profile of a cheaper but pretty good pale ale.

(20 oz pour into a clear plastic cup - I've had this a few times before though)

L: Real hazy, light orange-amber in color... messy foam

T: Week-old, thick-pulpy but dried-out grapefruit flesh... mess of citrus slop atop a staling-like, mildly graham-cracker malt undercurrent

F: frothy, fluffy... light, but not crisp... not the least bit weighty

O: this is all about citrusy hops blanketing the malts and your palate... does this trick if you need a hop fix, but ultimately comes across as a rushed, sort of hobby-like American pale ale or a slightly scaled-back IPA.
