Pouring this bad boy out and its a nice dark brown color. An average sized light cream colored head forms. The head dies down to a drinkable level quickly and never really leaves. The beer smells great. The hops are really fragrant but at the same time I can smell the malt coming though. Based on the smell I was expecting a strong bite from the hops. The flavor is very nice. The hops and the malt smells blend very well in the flavor. The beer has a very nice bitterness to it that seems to change through the sip. What I mean by this is that from when the beer first hits your lips then gets swallowed the bitterness changes. It even kind of lingers. The mouthfeel is full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

Overall this is a kick ass beer. I like hops and I like dark beer and this blends them really nice. I really didn't know what to expect with this beer. I was hoping for good but was cautious of anyone seeming to use hemp as a selling point. I always feel brewers that use marijuana leaves on the packaging are hoping for a certain demographic to just by their beer based on that fact alone, feeling that making an actual quality beer is not important. This thankfully was not the case.
