brown color with a good clarity to it. A nice rich looking head of light tan rose up from the sides of the glass and reached a height of around two fingers before settling back down with a smooth and even lacing and a nice consistency hugging the glass. Aroma is a good bit hoppier up front then I thought it was going to be as well. This one just seemed to be full of surprises. Rich caramel and earthy grains lie underneath a bouquet of pine like hops. Quite light and very complex. I was extremely open to this one. First sip is smooth, creamy malts that wash across the tongue. Great complexity here now as well. Rich brown ale flavor, creamy, hints of earthy tones and a rich, subtly dry hop presence that seems to build and build. Last sips seem to be equally as well versed in sweet caramel notes as they are in dry, piney hops
