Great hops out of Richmond. Nice caramel color, fruity nose, bite on the tongue that smooths to that grapefruity finish.

Poured a reddish-brown color. I remember honking it is darker than I imagined. Flavor was excellent. An earthy resinous hop backbone supported with grapefruit, roasted malts and something sweet...maybe cinnamon or nutmeg? Interesting. Awesome.

Pour is cloudy dark amber, a bit on the copper side, with some tight white head and solid retention. Nose has a lot of malt to it, caramel, crystal malt, hint of citrus hop but mostly stale resinous hops, a touch earthy and a faint peppery spice. Taste follows suit, malty up front, lots of crystal malt, stale hop, resinous, light biscuit, moderate citrus punch. Well carbonated, medium body, clean finish with a lingering citrus.
