Keg @ Brewdog Manchester. The pour’s deep amber with a small white head. The nose is big pine needle, resinous tree sap. Earthy conifer forest, like a punch to the face from the pacific northwest. Mild pineapple sweet aromas. The taste is sweet pineapple, papaya and melon tropical fruit salad. Some salted cheddar. Salty driftwood on the medium bitter finish. Nice vibrancy, lively on the palate. Overall, this is actually quite good. Nice.
