Bbig herbal vegetal nose – close to mint with some dark sugars on the nose. Pours brilliant copper amber under a 1” white foam cap that descends to a thick film that produces significant lace. Has a big palate with initial fruit, citrus, light berry, then a big drying hop bitterness. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness that somewhat resembles the tannin like bitterness in black tea. Above average carbonation with a medium full body. Has an excellent creamy texture and a very nice mix of bitter and berry.
