Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, fat-bubbled, white head. Spotty lacework. The bouquet presents some crazy, resiny, funky-assed hops – a little pine, toast and biscuit as well. Full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. Great balance of flavorful, bitter hops and great caramel, bread and toffee sweetness. Bittersweet, grassy finish.
