Amber beer. A nice showing of thick lace from a mere inch of head that would allow from the overpour. Needless to say, some very good retention.
Herbal hops, some citrus and some pine, but otherwise very mild in the aroma. A light touch of the floral. The malts are odorously toasty.
Pine, herbal hops, a taste reminiscent of how paint thinner smells. Harsh, but it subsides as you enjoy the beer. Notes of bitter orange and unripe peach.
Drinks at a good pace, some ethanol fumes here and there chasing me. Describable as medium-bodied, carb just a notch below that. This is good, because any more aggressive and the beer would be harsher than it is.
Decent. Gets better as you drink. Not prototypical in the way that it should be more malty. Or that the maltiness would have that certain signature.
Serving type: on-tap

Notes are from 5/26
It's a dark one, almost a brown-orange-red with a fiery flare in the recesses and a brighter amber gleam outside. The head is an off-white cap just shorter than half a finger, but it keeps up well and leaves behind pretty good lace.
It has a sort of hybrid tone to it, seeming to incorporate the earthy, spicy, woody/leafy bitterness with brighter citrus and not-quite-dank notes along with lots of yeasty esters giving off dark fruits as well as almost tropical under the danker/earthier stuff. There's also just a twinge of alcohol noted with every sniff and sip, but nothing too heavily ethanolic to enjoy the overall very much.
There's a sort of earthy dankness that even translates to the feel, though it doesn't weigh down the medium body or take away from the brightness that also translates. Crispness comes out strong on the palate from front to back, as does smoothness in the semi-dry feel.
