This beer pours a slightly red copper color with a nice off-white head that leaves good lacing behind. Tons of hop esthers and tangerine citrus aromas are backed by notes of sweet malt and nectarine pit. The mouth is fruity and forward with great grapefruit pith and dark stone fruit flavors. It's definitely bitter but doesn't completely overpower the sweet fruit flavors. Thick and chewy with a long, softly astringent finish.
