On tap at the 10th Annual San Diego Strong Ale Festival: Clear, bright bronze copper with a nicely-lacing wispy white head. Toasty grainy caramel malty aroma has lots of fresh piny hops and some lager yeastiness. Body starts with a nice fresh malty sweetness and some piny clove spice toward a well-balanced toward a drier toasty finish. A unique and enjoyable brew.
