Nothing much here in terms of bittering hops. A drinkable but rather immemorable beer.

Cybercat (5396) - Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Pours clear dark amber with a thick buff head. Aroma is hoppy, resiny and robust. Flavor has a bold hoppy note, fairly but not fiercely bitter, with malty and grapefruit underpinnings plus a woody hint. Mouthfeel has strong and full fizz, and firm body. Hop into a Gordon Biersch and order a crater.
