Good but unremarkable. Malt backbone is present but little on the lighter side. Hops tend more towards pine than citrus and are subtle. Moderately bitter but clean. Finish is lingering.

Lumpy head which lasts throughout the tasting. Light amber color. Mild haze. Good chunky lace on the glass.

Malty start to the nose -- caramel and toasted biscuit.

The malt is brief and completely dominated by the bitter hop. Very dry finish with a black pepper bite. Long aftertaste. Low carbonation with a moderate body. One dimensional with the bitterness being that one dimension.
