Tap. Aroma of lovely citrusy, grapefruity, oily hops. Flavor has more resinous hoppiness with a solid malt base and a nice bitter kick with pine in the finish. Quite sluggable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 Draught at City Steam: Sweet hoppy aroma. Smells of hops, pine, citrus, resin and some toasted malts. Poured amber in color with a small, dense, creamy, white head that diminished but left a thin skin. Clear. Not sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium bitter and lightly sweet. Tastes of hops, grapefruit, malts, caramel, and resin. Medium body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy, resiny finish is dry.
