22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: The color of the brown bottle it came in with a slightly red tint; 1+ finger head
S: Solid malt backbone, almost smells like a bit of rye in the mix, along with noticeable pine/citrus hops
T: Matches the nose - nice hop/malt balance
M: Medium-bodied
O: Nothing in particular stands out as particularly unique but every part is well executed and balanced
