served from a can into tulip glass. no date on can.
pours a deep copper color, amber, maybe a deep orange to it. soapy white head that thins but clings to the edge of the glass , leaving lacing.
smells of malty sweetness, maybe caramel, followed by dank piney hops. the hops are really well balanced in the aroma, it's not an IPA smell but it certainly brings an earthiness to the aroma. the malts aren't roasted; more sweet and bready, maybe even nutty?
at the front of the tongue, a nice hop bite that pangs of pine. moves back on the tongue with a caramel malt character, slightly chocolately even, and then finishes semi-dry, almost no astringency. mouthfeel is moderatel;y carbonated and full.
overall, this is quite balanced and great. it's dank and hoppy, but the malts are more substantial than in IPAs and balance out really well with the sweet flavors. i cant believe how smooth the finish is either, again, with a rather substantial hop profile, this beer is easy to drink. quite enjoyable!
