A: Pours brilliant amber under a persistent 2” dirty white foam collar that grips the side of the glass
S: Citrus, fresh cut wood, traces of mint, perfume, floral.
T: Fruit, biscuit, lightly sweet, traces of anise and cola, long lingering bitter aftertastes.
M: Big creamy body just short of chewy, slight astringency on the finish, finely bubbled soft carbonation.
O: A big, well balanced double IPA.
