Can. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

SG111 (1295) - New York, USA - APR 12, 2016
Canned. No clear date. Pours honey golden, slightly hazy, small off white head, some lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, cherry, fig, super malt bomb. Like a Barleywine. Flavor is yea, malt bomb. It’s a good malt bomb though! Some citrus undertones. Almost slight funk. Probably was pretty good fresh!

mrjaxson (497) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Exactly as advertised, Grind Line is an extremely well-balanced pale ale with the hops and malts exchanging prominence throughout the imbibing process. Both grapefruit and caramel are present in the aroma and the finish is both sweet and bitter, though neither in great amounts. Very tasty. Poured from a tall boy can.

Good hoppy pale ale. Malt notes up front lead to a mild hop finish that leaves your mouth slightly dry wanting more.
