It looks to pour a rather unusual orange-brown, but settles at more of a red-brown, completely clear in its body. It starts off with some bubbling clinging to the glass, which dissipates within a few minutes. The off-white head is a solid finger for a good while, fading quite slowly to a thick layer that rests on top, while a thick collar of lace is exactly the height of the head where it sat and follows with patching.
Some hops jump out front but then regulate themselves to the background while a dusty sort of earthiness comes out with lots of grains and something like half-baked pumpernickel. It's a little spicy as well.
Grains mingle with leafy and earthy hops up front on the tongue, getting both breadier and slightly spicier with each sip. The back of the throat feels and tastes more of the raw hops bitterness even as the front of the tongue gets more sourdough.
The body holds medium with a nice crispness, a good bite but clean as well. It starts off with smoothness and gives it over to the bite without losing it. Some leafy dryness is felt from middle to end, but it holds a good median.
