Pours a hazy dark amber with a large long lasting tan head, with very good lacing and head retention throughout to the end. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, some nice earthy piney hops, some hints of dark fruit, raisins. Taste is a nice rich sweet caramel malt with some good earthy piney hops. A nice full bodied creamy texture on the palate with moderate carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt some dark fruit, raisins followed by some earthy piney resiny hops bitterness. Nice hoppy bite with moderate carbonation makes it easy to drink. Overall a very good tasty and balanced IPA
