Smells quite a bit funkier than the oiginal. The flavor heavily bends on the grapefruit with a heavy acidic bitterness. I like it.

Draft at Craft. Pours turbid thick orangy, looking a lot like orange juice, with off-white head. Nose is big grapefruit, some oak, hops, florals and spices. Tastes grapefruit-forward, very complex in flavor and with a great mouthfeel, with some oak, coriandery spice, florals, and a rich grapefruit finish. This one is juicy and thoroughly quaffable.
