Pours dark amber, beautiful 2 finger off white sticky head, great retention, left a thick lace while drinking.
Pine, candied lemon peel, I think I smell the rye but that could be my imagination.
Harsh bitterness up front, lemon and almost a grape fruit flavor, the bitterness lingers well into the finish, malty finish good sweetness on the finish too, on another note I would never expect this to be an 8% abv beer the alcohol is very well masked by the flavors.
Light in body, almost thin, the carbonation is nice a little light though.
Very drinkable, super flavorful smooth beer, to bad it only comes in 4 packs
Serving type: bottle
