Notes of grapefruit, mango, papaya, resin, and fresh cut grass are countered by roasty, chocolatey malt in the aroma. Fruity hops dominate. Flavor is citrusy initially, with grassy and earthy undertones, becoming roasty mid palate, which carries into a dark chocolate and coffee grounds bitterness in the finish. Again, flavoring hops, especially grapefruit, dominate, but the roast bitterness adds an interesting contrast. Excellent beer, especially for 6 bucks a bomber. Notes of fresh cut grass and pine serve in the aftertaste for even more hop character.
