Look is a great unfiltered caramel-rose color. Long lasting frothy head. Smell is earthy hops, lemon, rose, buttery malt. Taste is pine, dark fruit, lemon, dank hops along with gingerbread-like malts. Well carbonated medium feel with some oiliness due to excessive hopping(not complaining here).

Great hoppy brew from SN. I've also had it aged a year and it retains much of the hop flavor surprisingly, but a much more 'dirty', earthy hop flavor is present. Superb either way.
