3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Clear amber ale with orange highlights and a small, ultra-sheer, white head. The nose provides earthy pine and cat piss as the aromatic foundation for a ton of citrusy pink grapefruit. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor presents intense, major-league bitterness - grapefruit rind and pine. Lengthy, lightly malty, violently bitter finish that bites hard and doesn’t release any time soon. Bottle provided by darkguardian!
