It poured a lightly hazy tan color with a small white head. The aroma was of toasted grain which was vibrant, fresh, enticing and well-balanced with hop aromatics (citrus, pine sap, fresh cut wood). The soft carbonation and delicate, silky texture are well-matched with buzzing hop acid and fruity yeast esters. The taste was similar to the aroma and was surprised to finally find one of these brown ale / IPA hybrids that delivers.
