3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a muddy cherrywood color with a nice light head and sticky lacing. The nose is earthy and dusty with some pale malt and a pronounced rye and columbus note. The flavor is fairly bitter, not a huge body for its size. Crisp and spicy mouthfeel and a creamy herbal finish. Not my favorite combo of hops but it is rich and satisfying nonetheless.
