I'm going to do my best to ignore the lame, obnoxious bottle text, which more or less aims to belittle you if you don't agree that this is an awesome beer.
Pours cranberry juice red with a pillowy two-finger head that retains well. It smells like piney hops but with a huge malt presence: I get brown sugar, toasted oats, and some dark fruit notes. It has a bitter pine needle taste from the beginning of the tongue until the end and leaves the back of the throat tingling. Alongside the hoppy flavors, there's a caramel malt with hints of indistinct dark fruits.There's a dichotomy in this beer and the hoppy characteristics don't work well with the malty ones. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation.
