Draft at Crown. Easily my favorite beer of the stop. Pours a deep copper, nearly brown with an offwhite head. Nose is nice with a flinty and woody hop profile. Some caramel and toasted malt comes through as well. On tasting, a big bitterness supports the medium apparent sweetness. Lots of flavorful woody hops and light caramel. Very balanced and super clean. A superb example of the style, super fresh.
