Cloudy golden appearance, with a small but bubbly head. The hazy nature of this beer makes it look very natural, almost like it just poured out from a gourge in the earth.

Smells of bitter malts, raisins, licorice and general funkiness.

Taste is surprisingly subtle, in a most delightful way. The bitterness from the hops is apparent, yet never overwhelming. A lot of pine and citrus. I am not sure what I was expecting going into this, but definitely not this. Incredibly drinkable, and quite shallow substance-wise. Fine, not great. Probably overpriced at $12 for a 4-pack, but respectable.

Look and smell both indicate this is going to be huge. Color is almost orange, not much head. Smells sweet. Beginning of sip is all malt sweetness and then the dry bitter finish comes on towards the end. Doesn't feel too heavy. Overall, liked this a lot and getting it again.
