I enjoyed this from the crowler, poured chilled into a glass.

The color is almost black with pale tan head average sized bead. The smell is very dank and hopppy with citrus notes and slight herbal/pine aroma.
The feel is mostly hop with moderately high bitterness and light roasted texture with moderate carbonation.

The taste is good with nice blend of hop flavors with moderately pine dominant and dank quality with low malt in the taste with slight dark malt element. Overall this is excellent with more hops than malt and low roast mostly hops in flavor.
