Bottled. Dark amber, non-existant head. Lychee aroma. Sweet with abruptly short mouthfeel, but lingering hoppiness. There’s some ash and apple in there, and the short finish is harsh and bitter. A mediocre IPA.

Bottle from Archer Liquors. Reddish copper color with a decent beige head. Aroma of resin. Medium body with fine carbonation. Flavor is lots of hop - not just pine - over lightly roasted malt. Goes through a number of things - floral - sweet - bitter into the finish. Leaves a nice hoppy ending, but not super bitter. Really good ale.
