On tap at brewery. Very dark amber with small creamy head. Malt in spades, especially in the aroma. Hops kick in at first sip and linger for quite a while, pleasantly. ABV hides behind the hops, only evident by some gentle warmth deep in the gut.

-reddish brown hue, good not as much head as desired
-great pine slight hop floral but sweet
-great flavor hoppy but not to overpowering, smooth, kissing IPA territory?
-warming but not lingering, could of had a thicker body but overall still good
- great beer would definitely drink again
