  • Pours clear with light, yet thick to a point foam. Retention is above average with sticky, sporadic, and thin lacing.

    Aroma is a mix of citrus and pine hops on caramel malt. The overall impression is a nice balance here.

    Taste is hops up front: pine. The middle brings a transition from pine to grapefruit with a bit of caramel for good measure. The finish carries the grapefruit hops with a touch of resin.

    Medium body with about the same carbonation. Dries the mouth while coating a bit with hop oils.

    A nice beer that carries the hops and malts well. Bitterness hight lights the finish but it doesn't over power, lingers slightly. Solid and worth an occasional visit. Enjoy!
