Slightly hazy deep reddish-tawny color with a dense tan head giving moderate retention. Nice lacing in the glass.

Pine needles, resin, light citrus, toffee, brown bread on the nose. The hop notes are upfront, but nicely balanced aginst the beers other elements.

Agressive hops on the palate. Pine and resin dominate. Bitter on the finish, but balanced. Mouth watering on the finish for some time.

Medium+ body and very dry on the palate. Bold in its feel with a long aftertaste.

Really more like a Double IPA in its approach. If you like a bold beer that loads up on hops, look no further.
