Draft... Clear brown pour with flashes of crimson when held up to light and a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is a blend of dank, hempen, piny hops with an underpinning of caramel and chocolate malts. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with busy carbonation. The flavor offers bitter, rindy hops seamlessly merged with a lesser caramel note. Finishes acrid, medium bitter and then dry. Grassy bitterness clings to my cheeks and palate and lingers.
Soft nose. Citrus hops. Some toffee. Surprisingly bitter finish. Pretty damn good.
