L: Pours slightly hazed amber under a 2” cream colored foam collar that recedes to a thick, lacy film over 3 minutes. S. Has a grassy, herbal, minty nose with some biscuit. T: The attack starts with medium high maltiness with a big biter hop accent. The bitterness is crisp and more of a quinine bitterness with some earthy notes than a citrus bitterness. F: Medium body and soft, creamy carbonation with a little astringent hop bite on the finish. O: A hoppy beer with some rough edges but overall very easy to drink.

It reminds me of DFH 90 minute, but not quite as good.

nice head reddish amber body see through. Somewhat aged funk in the smell, sweet and caramel. Fruity, maybe apple. light feel, hops more in the front with malt in the back. Somewhat yeasty. Somewhat of a german feel to this one for me. Last sip more sour than rest.
