  • Color: Dark Ruby Brown
  • Pours clear with a couple of fingers of tan foam. The foam quickly ran away from the top of my beer leaving a thin layer. Some blotchy lacing.

    Aroma is strong on the citrus, herbal hops but equally there is a bready malt backbone for it to reside.

    Fresh floral hops with a big bready/doughy malt flavor underneath for some balance. Grapefruit, spice hops and bitterness in the finish.

    Medium body and carbonation with a tad of creaminess to round it out.

    I thought I was in for a good beer here. It isn't bad but from the pour, with the dark color, I knew that it would be different from expectations. The bready malt presence and possibly the green hop characteristics that seem to be prevalent, just didn't do it for me. It is a good beer but, for me, leaves me wanting something different. Enjoy!
