Had two bottles of this one, different tasting ones at that. Aroma is sticky resiny blood grapefruit. Taste is almost exclusively that too, i´m drinking it wishing it had more piney tones!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is on the lower end in both the malt and hops, but pleasantly sweet. The taste experience is nice and smooth - almost a little like honey and the hops lightly tap dances around on your tongue before exiting, leaving you with a mature, dry, bitterness. Excellent stuff, and the color is lovely also!
