from a single into an imperial pint, pours a mildly hazy deep dark copper with a big khaki head and decent lacing. Nose lacks definition...a lot of graininess, with some vague pine and a hint of citrus on the edge. Taste starts out okay, some bready malty notes, some resin, some honey-sweetness even... but there is a kind of metallic and grainy and lemon-peel-dry(if that's possible) edge that comes on for the back half and then lingers; it is problematic, and it is difficult to get past. The mouthful is pretty good, well carbonated and a nice crispness, finishing dry.

Pours a clear golden amber color with white head. Light citrus and pine with a balance of bready malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty balanced between the hops and malt.
