UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Bottle shared @ Borefts 2014. Clear amber color. Off white/light beige head, uneven, sticky. Aroma’s: red fruit, brown sugar, light resinous hops.

Bottle at Craft Cafe Imazato shared by my buddy Mick. A lovely copper pour with a slight white head of foam. It has a solid hop bouquet with a well balanced flavor profile. It didn’t really stand out but was enjoyable enough.
