Nice shiny penny copper color with a nice inch thick off white head. Light Brussels lacing. Strong aroma of vinous hops with a trace of light grains. The flavor is much more balanced with plenty of deeply pungent vegetal hops with a distinct sourdough bread grain taste. The mouth is fairly carbonated and sticky.

Thin head but still with some scattered lace on a murky deep orange body with copper hues. Aroma of tart citrus, mostly it ages and some grapefruit, candy sugar and hint of earthy hops. Flavor follows with a somewhat medicinal tart orange and even some aspirin quality on a barely perceptible pale malt base. Hints of grapefruit and floral notes. Medium to thick body which coats the palate quite a bit with moderate to high carbonation. I have had better beers fromGF. The major issue was that the medicinal and aspirin quality got worse as I drank it and I couldn't get used to it. Maybe this keg was bad. Had this been a bottle it would have been a drain pour.
