Bottle from DeLaurenti, Pike Market, Seattle
Amber color, clean. Very nice aroma of hops, resiny and fruity, piney, with some biscuits. Good toffee flavor, not sweet, but with a round mouthfeel; good hopping, for strength and quality, providing a fair share of piney resins, leading to a long final.
Fresh, very good.
