Darwenus (827) - Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2016
Pours a dense yellow, lots of carbonation, and an extreme amount of foamy head. The aroma is very bitter, musty and dry. Notes of boiled cabbage, pine, just generally funky, bitter hoppiness. The flavor is aggressive. Extremely bitter, with some of the ABV detectable in the nose on the finish. This was good.

Bottle (750ml $9 Costco 2016). Cloudy. Golden with white head. First sip was al little weird. I tasted some spice, but not after that. Somewhat sweet, quite fruity. Slight alcohol burn in the end. Nice
