Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Look – nice dark red color, clear, with about two fingers’ worth of frothy, khaki-colored foam that dissipates somewhat slowly.
Smell – earthy hoppiness, but with an even more grounded type of quality, possibly from the malts. Tasmanian hops don’t seem to cast too much of a different aroma, but it does seem to be a blending of the smells of Cascade and maybe Saaz.
Taste – the taste of the hops is felt first, and then the bitter kick from them is next. The bitter, pine needle-like taste is very interesting. The malts are hard to pick out, but they’re likely balancing out the taste quite a bit.
Mouthfeel – pretty well balanced, not seeming to lean more toward the watery or creamy sides.
Overall – not a bad brew at all. Doesn’t seem to be very complex, but the taste itself is still very interesting.
