12oz brown bottle, no freshness date.
Bright golden glow in the light, faint hop haze. Bubbly lacing certainly suffices and then some. Blond tobacco, hemp seed oil, soft pint, cilantro and mint show the hops in an epic proportion for the aroma. Hey malt, how hay doing? Thanks for the bready and biscuity flavors but now you can move aside for what I really want. Fresh hop flavor, thanks. Stodgy oily hop chaos grips the taste buds. Bitterness is not scathing but pricks the tongue enough times to be noticed. Flash of shortbread from the malt but then a whole lot of hop flavor pushes in. Hoppy semi-dry finish.
Great example for someone to try a fresh hopped ale, balanced and drinkable. Complex yet easy to quaff back.
