3.75/5 rDev -3.8%
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark copper with a 3-finger foamy head. Fades to 1 finger. Slight chill haze. Excellent lacing & retention. Visible carbonation.
Aroma: Piney/resiny. Touch of fruit. Something tart & tropical; kiwi?
Taste: Malty arrival. Sweet, but not cloying. Astringent toward the end of mid-palate, with candy-like fruity quality, then solid hop bitterness and astringency, but not a powerful hop finish.
Mouthfeel: Rich, malty arrival then very astringent.
Overall: This is totally unlike Burning River, much sweeter, and then this astringency. Really balanced; definitely would buy again, but I could see this being too sweet after a couple.
