Black in color while allowing a little light through. Solid off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.
Fresh and assertive hop aroma. Enough said?
Robust hop flavor, mostly pine and herbal notes. Underlying malt flavor provides mild roasted flavors of almonds and coffee. Mostly hoppy in flavor and dry in finish.
Light to medium body. Highly carbonated but this is appropriate. Smooth. Drying. Satisfying.
I like this. Good character and refreshing. I would classify it as a black ipa but it works well as a winter warmer also. If you like hops, you will probably like this.
Serving type: on-tap
