Slightly bitter nose with floral hops and coffee. I get a bit of of citrus, herb and pine from the hops, with a brewed coffee and chocolate malt.

The flavors are well balanced as a hoppy porter isn't overly appealing sounding. The hops are lightly blended with lemon, pine and ever so slight dankness. The porter like malt backbone isn't overwhelming and emits mostly coffee tones. There is some chocolate malt but the coffee is roasted, brewed and bitter.

This has a relatively full feel with a super easy drinkability and moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable!
