On draft. Dense whipped cream like head that sticks to the glass as thick lace. Wet earth-plus-spice aroma. Creamy mouth feel. Some spicy malts dominate and somehow there isess hop presence than I might have expected. Still wonderful.

Draft at the brewery. Clear good color with a huge, solid white head and sheets of lacing. Even with the pillow head you get lots of sweet hop aroma like red grapefruit. Flavor falls a little flat with some light sweetness and mild bitterness. Okay.
