Poured into a maudite tulip glass a transparent burnt orange with a two finger white froathy head. Great lacing all the way down the glass. There is a presence of piney hops and carmel on the nose. The taste is masked by alcohol, but when I can get that out of the way I find a bitter hop taste that goes directly to a carmel flavor. The carbonation is very high that leaves a tingle long the inner cheeks of my mouth. Not too bad, nothing that takes away from the beer. The alcohol is blatently strong however, but that really should go with the style.
