11/5/13. 22oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy red amber pour with a small khaki head that fades and laces moderately. Moderate hops aroma, lightly dank, some bubblegum and citrus, caramel and chocolate. Mild hop bitterness, plenty of chocolate in the flavor, some muted caramel and breadiness. Goes down surprisingly well for the ABV, but also surprisingly drab.
