Tap. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy complex hop aroma. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. This beer surpassed my expectations.
