Tried on tap at the Florida Brew Fest 2011 addition. Pours deep mahogany with tan head. The aroma forcibly pushes out notes of orange, sugar sweetened grapefruit and tropical mango all mixing together with a thin sweet backbone as well as a faint sense of malt roastiness well off in the background. The taste is smooth and starts off with lots of flavor hops coming from grapefruit, ripe orange and mango. By midway it gets a bit resiny as it ramps up and heads into a mild malt roastiness into the finish.

On draft at the FBG Fest 2011. Pours a dark brown with a white head. Nose is some roast, some coffee, and plenty of grapefruit punch. Flavor is similar- some roast, some coffee bitterness, and plenty of hops (citrus and a hint of pine). Finish lingers with grapefruit bitterness. Very nice.
