220z poured into snifter

A: Gorgeous murky Carmel color like a brackish brown nice head and it finishes into a ring around the beer and then it laces the glass to the finish

S: like a resiny hoppy mess it just smells like it's going to make you pucker it's piney Sticky smell

T: It's dripping hops and full on your face bitter with a smooth malt back bone that eases the bitterness into nothing. It's shocking this beer you just expect to be bitter and abrasive but it's smooth.

M: has full to medium feel

O: I had this last year and it was more abrasive in your face. this year it's smoother I'm not sure it's a bad thing. It's so smooth it's smell promises sticky and bitter but the taste is there without the over-the-top ness of bitterness.
