My can says 8.7% unlike TT's can. Weird.

Pours a nice slightly cloudy copper with a nice reddish hint to it. Small off-white head settles fairly quickly and leaves just a little bit of lacing stuck to the walls of the glass.

Nice thick and semi-sweet notes of caramel malt. Hint of toasty malt and a bit of light creamy toffee. Hops are in there with a nice grapefruit and a hint of lemon but not as big I was expecting. Bit of metallic aroma at the end.

There are the hops! Nice smooth and fruity grapefruit and a bit of lemon. Caramel malt backbone holds the hops well with a nice bit of sweetness to it. Bit of bitterness is soon calmed by the malt again. Fruity with a nice caramel twist. No sign of the alcohol or the metallic tones that were in the aroma.
