This was positively horrible. An immediate drain pour.

Served from the can in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Crash the gates...with temperance. Hm. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber-brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises sharp grass, light grapefruit rind, sweet toffee, and mild greens. The taste brings in more of the same, the toffee leading the way before clashing a bit with the harshly bitter grass and mossy greens. Harumph. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, I seriously disliked this beer. The malts were far too strong and sweet, the hops were strident and muddled, and the two components not only clash but try to kill each other. I know Temperance makes better, but I find it odd that one of their flagships is this poor...

12 oz can purchased from Binnys (mix 6) split into 3 tasting glasses
A - rusty golden hue, 1 finger of white foam that dissipated pretty quickly
S - smelly! grapefruit citrus primarily
T - not nearly as bitter as I was prepared for! somewhat sweet up front, grapefruit flavor comes through in the taste as well - probably because i wrote grapefruit in the last category now I've planted the seed
M- dangerously smooth, a little bitter flavor lingers on the palette
O - this is one of the first English Style IPAs ive ever tried - good smells won me over with this one
