Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration with a small alcohol burn as it warms. This is a very good beer.
