Pours a copper color with a white head leaving plenty of lace down the snifter. The aroma is fruity if anything, with notes of citrus, tree fruit, dried assorted fruit, alcohol and pine. In the taste, more grapefruit, other citrus, peach, and pineapple. There are also more earthy and piney elements going on which add a solid bitterness. Alcohol content is noticeable but does not detract from the flavors. Full bodied, well carbonated brew. Overall, this is a Hopsoulution I can endorse. It dials in lots of fruit flavor without actually containing fruit.
