Bottled 1/19/16.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, candied citrus zest, caramel, and pine needle aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and pine needle flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice caramel presence that works with the hop qualities.

Serving type: bottle.

I have to give the look of this beer very high remarks--the simple stylish text label is great, and the beer is mega frothy and quite dark for a pale ale.

This beer tastes like a home brew experimental failure. It's immediately very sweet and watery, and then follows with a strange bitter lagery malt. The finish is a rotten bitter mess. All the wrong flavors at all the wrong times. This 22oz bottle was given to me as a gift, I would have been upset if I bought it myself.

Poured a finger and half of head on a clear, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is grapefruit, through and through.
The taste is strong bitterness, a bit dry and all grapefruit again.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
It's a strongly bitter pale ale and good for it.
