High clarity, color on the citrine side of amber. Strong foam on the pour the recedes to lace the glass. Initially, I smell and taste the hops. Citrusy, with a bit of astringency. In a sip or two, I am accustomed to hops and the malt begins to shine. There is some sweetness and toastiness, and as I drain the glass, toasty recedes and something like chocolate takes its place. Did they use a bit of chocolate malt to increase color?

Tasted like a malt heavy piece of wet cardboard. Hopefully the just oversparged this batch.
