Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz. bottle.
A - pours a medium brown, forming a 1/2 inch tan head. Medium rings of lace on the glass.
S - floral hops dominate the aroma with a hint of the roasted malts.
T - the roasted malts dominate the palate so that the hops are not even noticeable until the finish, even then, very week. This tastes more like a porter.
M - medium bodied with average carbonation. Very smooth and clean. No harsh hop finish like expected.
D - not a bad beer by any stretch, however this doesn't really hit the style profile. Taste and body are more like an English porter and nothing like an IPA or cascading ale. A tasty beer but not what I had in mind.
