3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Piney hops start; faint malt. Deep copper color with barely off-white head. Dank, resinous almost sap-like hop flavor starts, which rounds out to finish semi-sweet. Medium bodied with crisp finish and high bitterness. An enjoyable amber that tastes similar to a dark IPA.

A really surprising beer. I was not expecting much but this is sparkly and really bitter. A nice red color too.
