Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Dark copper, two fingers of head dissipate fairly quickly but leave some very nice lace.
Earthy, a bit musky, caramel, citric and herbal hops.
Tastes more complex than the nose let on. Spicy hops, grapefruit and herbal, even slightly tropical (pineapple?). Caramel and slightly toasted grain show up in the end and bring all the flavors together in the finish. Well balanced.
Medium body, ample carbonation adds crispness, but is slightly overbearing IMO.
Overall: This is pretty great... more flavor and complexity than i was expecting. A few of these would make for a good night.
Serving type: bottle
