Pours a golden-straw color, very mild amount of haze, translucent with a slightly off-white head; big and bubbly, creamy and lasting with nice lacing on the sides of the glass. Upon first whiff, the hop profile smells pretty nice; perfume, spicy, white pepper, roses, florals, and a slight earthy, citrus-peel sweetness that sneaks into the background. First taste isn't quite as bitter I was expecting, though not necessarily a bad thing. The first thing I notice a slight peppery, ashy hop flavor, a touch floral and earthy. Alcohol flavor comes out halfway through. More peppery and herbal hobs flow through the palate on the way down. Slight bread and biscuit malt backbone for the hops to stand on but not too much else from that side of the spectrum. The outro is full of that warming alcohol presence with a decrescendo of spicy hop flavor with a finishing touch of dry malt and a bit of yeast. Medium body, just outside the range of being sticky on the palate, somewhat dry finish, low-medium carbonation.
Nice spicy, peppery hop profile leads me to believe the type of hops were Central European. A decent IPA and easily drinkable even with the alcohol being a prominent role in the flavor department.
