The pour is a light, clear amber with a white that fades fast. the lacing is mediocre while the head remains intact. The aroma is very pleasing. Lots of spicy hops and a nice strong malty backbone. The mouthfeel is also quite nice, although there is too much carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty light as well. Now the bad. Up front, it tastes of stale beer. Off malt flavors intertwine with hop witternes to create, well, I don't know. That dank malty flavor never goes away.... There is about a 4 second window of delectable hops, but then it fades back to the aforementioned stale malt. It was good until I tasted it.
