Pours copper/orange with a thick creamy head. A lot clinging to the sides.
Nice has a solid malt base. A lot of fresh hop resin. Citrus and juicy fruit. Some spice.
A bunch of things are happening here. Earth tones up front but with a quick flash of caramel sweetness. A light sweetness carries through the middle. There is a balance of earth and fruity hops here I haven't experienced before. More on the earthy side with a quick hard hit of bitterness. Solid bitter finish but well balanced.
The 10.4%ABV is apparent so this is definitely a slow sipper. Medium malt body with a large amount of hops.
