Slightly hoppy, great taste and finish. The 2015 edition is a great beer if you're looking for something a little different.

A: crystal clear; burnt orange in color; moderate amount of bubbles rising; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to a thin cap; nice lacing that lasts;

S: pine, herbal, a little caramel;

T: herbal with lemon behind it; some black pepper spiciness along with herbal notes from mid-palate through the finish; moderate bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; highly carbonated;

O: the spiciness at the and is a little overwhelming; otherwise, I really like the balance and interplay between the various flavors;
