Poured up on tap at Buffalo Bill’s with clear copper body and gold edges supporting up an off white head and leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a little spicy with hops as well as some floral hops too. The taste is similar with a mix of spicy to floral hoppiness followed by a modest amount of vague hop bitterness.
