Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, straw-gold coloring with a frothy, foamy, bright white head. Good retention and great cling. Nose of resiny hops, heavy pine and pitch, with a subtle toasty backbone. Wow! Flavors of rich toast and floral notes forward, with a bitter and resin hops follow. Very balanced, with a biscuit and bitter aftertaste. Hoppy enough to challenge IPAs. Dry, clean finish, with a bitter hop linger. Awesome beer!
