Very hazy oranginsh-amber color. A bit of a tan head that fades rather fast. Some lacing and a small patchy layer of head remains.
A big malt aroma, with the hops being subtle and subdued. The hops in the aroma are earthy in nature, which compliments the grainy and earthy malt profile. I do get a big hop blast on tasting, piney and harsh, with some lingering citrus. Somewhat perfumey and not exactly jiving with the malt. This improves as the beer warms, so I am allowing that it came from the store a bit on the cold side.
This beer has a great big body and serious depth in malt and hop profiles. I get a DIPA feel to this beer and am impressed at a moderately lower ABV beer having this kind of body. Nice!
