A beautiful copper brew with pillowy head and great retention. Hop-accented (Think: Flowers and mint) aroma with a biscuit and caramel backbone. Some high-alcohol notes are noticeable both in the nose and tongue with the former having a more dominating dried leaves and grain husk flavors with a bubblegum center. Angular and spritzy on the tongue the brew quickly placates to an almost uncarbonated, soapy medium bodied brew with assertive bitterness.
