Pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a sticky looking white head.
Smells great. Piney hops, wet bread, caramel and alcohol. Great combination. The hop aroma is very strong and welcoming.
Really nice piney hop flavor. Warming alcohol. Carmel and toffee malt flavors are there, but subdued by the over-the-top hops. Really nice. Lingering oily hop flavor and malty sweetness on the lips is really nice.
Full bodied, oily mouthfeel. Substantial.
I could get into real trouble with this beer because the taste begs me to have another. Just what I'd hoped for and one of the better AIPAs I've had. Ruination, DFH 60 and 90 Minute fans would like this.
