From a bottle into a pilsner glass

A: beer is a hazy brick red color with limited light penetration. Thin layer of wispy foam and thin wispy lace on the glass.

S: big whiff of oily hops and malts. Woody notes and maybe some vanilla

T: malt is a bit lighter than I would have thought. Lots of bitter hops and possibly some carmel notes.

M: heavy on bitterness with a taste that sticks around for several minutes.

O: a typical brew from stone. Very hop forward and bitter. Exactly what I was hoping for.
