Clear copper in the glass with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus, specifically grapefruit, and light cereal malt. Crisp in the mouth, with more tangy citrus notes, pithy bitterness, and a spicy malt profile. Finishes dry, with lingering grapefruit peel and a flutter of alcohol. Tasty stuff.

Bottle. Pours clear reddish dark amber with a rocky to creamy mostly lasting head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus and spruce. Flavors of grapefruit, light to medium bitter, some astringency on the sides of my tongue. Average carbo, good solid malt backbone/well balanced and a long bitter finish being strongest in the far finish.
