The problem wasnít the hops, it was this earthy, muddy malt base that kinda overpowered the fruitiness of the hops. I got some mango, some grapefruit, and then an overpowering malt flavor. Crystal malt? Is that what Iím tasting?

Aroma of grapefruit, floral and a slight apricot. Pours Orange with a nice dense head. Taste is bitter and very strong. Underripe grapefruit zest punches through with some stale cracker funk. Intense.
