Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a pale golden-copper coloring with a filmy, light, thin, white head. Aromas of subtle citrus highlights, tropical fruit notes, and a rich, malty backbone. Some toasty and bready notes in the nose, as well. Flavors are bitter forward, very bitter, with a blast of tart grapefruit, some pepper spicing, and a toasty backbone. The bitter and tart is super heavy on the front-end, but does ease up towards the end, with a lingering grapefruit tartness throughout and grassy notes coming forward. The body is smooth and slightly light, with a bitter, resinous aftertaste of cedar, cut grass, and earthy notes. The finish is slightly effervesced, with a bitter and citrus tart linger.
