Poured directly and carelessly into a tumbler produced a darkish amber body with a tight foam head of 3 fingers. Head lingers strong in the glass finally settling down to a rocky top with sticky lace.
When held up to the nose the beer provides fresh notes of hops and hints of citrus. A strong spice note ties in strongly with sticky pine notes.
The taste up front is slightly overwhelming whilst the palate settles down, however, having said that, it does take some time before the taste balances out. The body is big and strong and the flavor profile is heavily dominated by thick hops and pine notes with an oily texture.
I've picked up a six pack of these. Have consumed two fresh and will add the remainder to proper storage. Hope to see the differences in the main elements as time changes the beer.
