look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Can to HFS Sniffer
A: brown to amber in color but leaning toward honey color. Thick 2cm tan head that takes its time going away and pretty much completely opaque
S: the nose is pretty much all malt it has a sweet smell to it though no real hops or other pungent scents to smell so that was kind of disappointing.
T: The taste is definitely malt dominant but on the other hand it is balanced out with hops pretty well as I can distinguish the fresh hop taste. The malt follows the nose in terms of sweetness and it balances out the bitterness of the hops. It is not necessarily an ordinary combination or my favorite but it definitely works.
M: Very thin almost watery but that makes it very drinkable as it also quite oily and has a bit of hop bite to it, decent but nothing special
O:This is an interesting combo as it is quite a malty beer so I see why they call it an ESB but it does have the hoppy characteristics of an IPA without being totally malt dominant so I was really impressed that they made it work but its just not really my style and did not blow me away worth a try for sure especially if malt is your thing.

Wow!! This one was a very pleasant surprise, after having Ethos, my expectations were that this one would be inferior, but in my opinion, that was NOT the case. One thing, I prefer piney IPAs vs grapefruity ones, which makes me biast in favor of this one.
As mentioned above, this has a piney hops flavor to this one, a lot like Sierra Nevada's Torpedo, which I adore. I'm not experienced with the ESB part, so I can't say much there, but overall, this beer absolutely hits the spot, and I will be a regular customer year round.
