Clear golden amber quite lively nicely paced tannish head... Lively, medium full bodied... Very fruity aroma, then a lightly fruity big pine flavor that has an aire of medicinalness...

Hop palette is Chinook bitter, and beautiful. Needs a little something to add aroma though. I wish I brought a growler to get filled.

On tap at Victory. Served in a sample glass. Chinook version. I can certainly tell. Earthy and a bit dank and all around slightly harsh. Super bitter and dry. Chinook heavy.
