This isn't a great beer, but it is good. Looks as it should. Yellow/gold/red amber and sufficiently cloudy. Tannish head with some firmness.
Largely hop aroma with a fullness and body and some firmness. This one isn't that distinct, but of a general hop aroma.
Big enough and firm mouthfeel. Well rounded hop flavors start to finish with a flavorful and enjoyable lingering bitterness.
Nothing distinct, but solid and enjoyable.

Serving type: can
