Dark brown with orange and a thin, fine, silky head. Hoppy aroma with pine, caramel, grass. Faint, subtle chocolate and a bit of fruit. Big bitter hops, earthy and grassy, with chocolate malts in the mouth. Very bitter finish. Highly drinkable but not really exciting. Nice chocolate touch, though.
Dark brown color. Not a lot of complexity, just straight forward small floral hop bomb. Little malt backbone. Light and sessionable, this is better suited as a summer beer.
