3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somewhat cloudy light brown with a small yellowish head. A spidery ring. Aroma features hops galore with grapefruit and some sugar. Flavor features grapefruit and pine along with some funk. The hops are balanced but not by caramel. It is more sugar which serves to offer little flavor thus enhancing the hop profile. A bitter aftertaste. A good beer but very one dimensional.
