This brew was better the second time I had it. This beer poured out as a nice looking copper color, it had a white soapy head on top that had a decent lacing. The smell of the beer was moderately hoppy with some malts in there too. The taste of this beer seemed hoppier to me the second time over the first time I drank it. The bitterness was pretty good in this one. The mouthfeel had a solid crisp feel to it along with a good dryness in the back. Overall this beer was pretty good.

Had this on tap at Blind Pig in Champaign. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark amber with a very thin white head. Leaves a nice ring around the glass and some splotchy lace on the way down.

S: Fruity berries with a subtle malt back and a little pine. Wasn't very pungent and I really had to search for it.

T: Very malty with some random fruity notes popping up here and there. Finish is a bitter.

M: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation and bitter hops splashed around the palate.

O: A little too malty and bitter for me. The flavors were there, but not strong enough to really hold it down.
