Tap. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is spicy, herbal and pine hops with biscuit and straw malt and a clean lager character. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red and brown, good head of foam that shrinks slowly. Got good lacing.
Smells hoppy, almost if not a fruity sort of hoppiness going on. Some bread.
Nice hoppy fruity taste with a backbone of bread malt. Also some light caramel malt.
Medium body, lightish co2.
Pretty easy drinker and I love the swing tops their beers come in. Worth more purchases.

11.2 ounce bottle from ABV. Pours a dark copper color, almost ruby, with a medium white head. A sweet nose of berries and toffee. A sweet malty base, dusty at times, big robust fruit, a bit of blueberries, a bit of cherries, some metallic bitterness, toffee, some light leaves. Pretty awesome. This, drink a liter I could. Awesome brew.
