Poured from a bomber into a Chimay Goblet. Tulip was dirty, so sue me.
Two-finger off white head, good retention. Looks like a typical, unfiltered IPA.
Mostly malt characteristics in the nose but with some grassy hops, There's a sweet, raw honey-esque sweetness.
Good spicy hops, clean malts and good mouthfeel. The hops are not particularly strong or robust, but very clean. The mouthfeel is perfect.
Overall Brutal is a fairly standard IPA in my opinion but very well balanced and is definitely a quality brew.
