The beer pours a bright amber in color. There is a half-inch of white head. The aroma is citrus, zest, passion fruit, over toasted malt. The taste follows the aromas, but is overwhelmed by a very intense bitterness on the finish. The finish is dry, astringent, and very bitter. The beer drinks smooth, with a soft carbonation. This would be a decent drinker if they toned down the bitterness, it is heavy even for the style.
