3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 On tap at the brewpub. Dark orange-red with a medium sized off white head. Slightly musty nectarine and grapefruit aroma with a hint of black pepper. Rather high bitterness to this - a lot of leather, grapefruit rind, tea leaves. Bitterness carries long into the finish. Really solid and surprisingly bitter and tasty.
