Gorgeous golden color yields a bright white and foamy head. The aroma is light and grassy, earthy and dank with some whole cone and floral components. The flavor is earthy, floral, and bitter. There's a nutty malt and honeycomb flavor with a piney bitterness. This is a bit dank and earthy for my taste but it delivers a lot of flavor.

12 fl. oz. bottle received in trade from a non-BA member that I sampled on August 20, 2014.

It pours a slightly cloudy medium amber with a tremendous cream colored head.

The aroma is a lovely balance of toasted caramel and toffee malts and hop bitterness but more earthy than floral or citrus.

Medium, smooth body.

The malt character starts things out with a bang but it does not take long for the hop bitterness to roar in like a waterfall and take things over, lingering to the end. Liked it.
