Nice, fairly solid, cream colored head. Only a very slight haze. Deep amber in color. Light hop aroma. They promote this beer as "totally agressive chewy hop juice". Hmmm, I just don't see it. It does have some hoppiness in the flavor, but not that much! The malt character is very basic and doesn't do anything to promote the hop, but it is balanced. There ARE hops in the finish, however. It has a very nice, long lasting hoppiness. Overall, an OK beer, but I expect much more from such a good brewer.
