From tasting notes. Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. It pours clear black under a 1” tan foam collar. The dark malt aromas and flavors are clean, smooth coffee flavors – a light roast and not harsh or burnt and are softened by a light caramel sweetness and seasoned by a citrusy, resiny, grapefruit rind bitterness. It all works very well together.

One of my favorite Cascadian IPAs, and here the name is more than fitting. A light chocolate roast and some crisp grapefruit notes with a piney, slightly resiny note on the finish. Delicious.
