decent white head, pretty good cling/lace, dark straw hue and pretty clear, mild amounts of carbonation populate the suburbs of the beer, looks more like your average lager than an IPA but looks aren't everything....
spicy and floral, an almost herbal/medicinal thing going on, sort of like smelling natural toothpaste, definitely something minty lurking in there, the malt is also in the background and has sort of an old school bubble gum thing happening (like big league chew), interesting mix, can't tell if I like it but it is interesting...
the carbonation seems a bit low, the flavor is sort of like the nose, it has some strange medicinal minty thing going on, the hops and the bitterness are there but that strange aftertaste really dominates this brew, this is a bit hard to finish
strange, not my thing, the dominating flavor is reminiscent of dental products with a bitter finish, definitely different but just not for me.
