Pours clear dark amber with a thick buff head. Aroma is hoppy, resiny and robust. Flavor has a bold hoppy note, fairly but not fiercely bitter, with malty and grapefruit underpinnings plus a woody hint. Mouthfeel has strong and full fizz, and firm body. Hop into a Gordon Biersch and order a crater.
