look: 4.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: deep red hue, slightly red (although this is a dark bar), very thin head

S: fruity and bitter, freshly cut wood (elm?)

T: Immediate bitter bite, nodes of grapefruit, lemon-peel, and woody. The last sips were better than the first (maybe due to warming)

M: Tingly and dry (gingerale mouthfeel without carbonation level) Flavor sticks to the mouth longer than most.

O: Drinkability- decent. It is comparable to Surly furious with water-downed citrus. Head dissolves very quickly. Aftertaste is good at first, but stayed into the next lager. Not bad- would drink again, but not rave worthy.
