Bottle shared with stillmatic2232.

Pours a dark amber, with a one inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells like spicy, earthy hops, caramelly, toasty malt, and a bit of pine.

This tastes like a very well balanced pale ale. It's hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so. There's a good malt backbone that tastes crackery and toasty, alongside a nice hoppiness reminiscent of pine, citrus, and earthy pepperiness (whatever, that's not really a word).

Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation. Quite drinkable.

Not flashy, just pretty delicious.
