A nice dark brown brew that pours a beautiful milk shake of a head, and it holds nicely right through the pint. The aroma is solidly hops, the green side of hoppy to be sure. Very inviting! The first taste is smooth, a grainy sweetness (brown rice?) and more hops. I do take some note of the alcohol content which makes it a little less drinkable in my book. It's pretty heavy for my tastes, but it is still quite enjoyable, obviously a quality brew. I will have to try more from this brewer!
