Pours a brilliant amber with a plume of dense khaki head that lingers.
Floral hops dominate, with cannabis and citrus adding complexity. There's a bit of skunk accompanying slightly sweet caramel malt.
Flavor reveals a somewhat sweet caramel malt backbone, which becomes deeply toasted and bitter in the finish. Underlying notes of muted grapefruit add complexity.
Body and carbonation are moderate. There's a slightly harsh astringency at the finish.
Much more malt character than expected, but it's nicely countered by both hop flavoring and bittering. The bittering is a touch more than I prefer, but depth of malt flavor and citrus keep me content.
