Matriarch is a bright dark orange in color, translucent, and somehow simultaneously heavy and light in the body. The creamy crown of light tan head drops creamy legging that spreads all over the glass.
This beer's aroma is big, to say the least. honey, pine, citrus, mint, and light pith balance off of lots of malts that keep it from being too harsh. It's balanced, yes, but this beer is absolutely loaded with hops.
The taste is the same with a little more bite, a touch of a slightly more peppery quality, and a light boozy note on the end.
This beer has a crisp feel, and while it's on the drier side it's juicy. It's got a medium body and lots of depth as the dryness and juiciness mingle, crispness keeps its bite, and it's still smooth all the way through.

A: translucent dark orange. fluffy large 2 finger head.

s: fresh white peach, apricot and mango. waves of citrus, grapefruit and pineapple. a strong caramel malt base underlines this amazing aroma.

t: sweet pineapple abd kiwi hit your tongue quickly before it dries up with waves of earth. strong dank pine and resin assault your tastebuds. toffee and bread round it out. a dry bitter pine finish.

m: thick with a little bit of syrup. long lingering caramel.and pine finish.

o: delish.and firing on all cylinders. juicy yet dry on the end. /91
