Pint Glass.

A - Nice,filtered nice lacing. decent head that faded quick. nice looking

S - I Got that initial grapefruit tinge to it....orange peel...alcohol.

T - Just getting a lot of alcohol and mild grapefruit notes. Nothing Special.

Overall this beer is nothing great..just your typical double.

12oz bottle poured into tulip. Hazy copper liquid with a finger of off-white foam that settles to a ring. Some dots of lacing remain on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit peel, orange juice, mint, dank hops, caramel, and bread. Taste is briefly citrus sweet then all is bitterness. Like a walnut meets grapefruit peel, meets pine needles. Medium body, oily texture, moderate carbonation, long bitter finish.
