Appearance

The beer pours a cloudy orange gold with a dense white layer of off-white cream.

Aroma

The aroma is dominated by grapefruit, earthy skunky hops, pineapple, and caramel notes.

Taste

Hop bitterness is prominent, accompanied by juicy hops, salty caramel malt, pineapple flavors, and a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel

The beer is full-bodied with a rough texture.

Overall Impression
