22oz bottle. Red-brown with a creamy beige head. A piney and spicy hop nose with light alcohol and toasted malt and caramel. The flavor has a lot of classic pine and grapefruit hops and a fat caramel and toffee malt balance. Very bitter and pretty dry for how malty it is. There is a little alcohol in the finish, but the burn balances the malt well. Very enjoyable, with a medium body and creamy carbonation that is perfect for this beer. I love how they got lots of malt flavor to balance the hops, but attenuated it enough to have just about as lean and drinkable a beer as you get at this size.
