  • Pours cloudy. Heaps of white, frothy foam cover. Big bubbles lie below the frothy cap.

    Aroma of grapefruit, pine, and dank grassiness. Light sweetness. No malt profile to be found - malt neutral.

    Taste is once again malt neutral. Grapefruit throughout. Pine, grass and dank. Finishes more bitter than expected. Big grapefruit there to push that bitterness.

    Medium body. Quite the carbonation - medium-high. Juicy on the lips but finishes dry.

    Could this can been a bit older than expected, as there wasn't a date on the can, and my experience is different than what I found online elsewhere. Still a nice beer just not great. The unbalance towards bitterness is surprising. Enjoy!
