Looks beautiful, feels beautiful. Deep amber, almost brown, with plenty of head and sticky lace, the likes of which are unexpected outside of the draft world. Creamy, smooth, medium low carbonation and medium high body gives it a big smooth, and very soft, mouthfeel. Decently balanced, leans toward the dry side, and like Zobie Dust, low acidity. Piney, slightly catty, and at 6.6 ABV, a nice in-between all days and DIPAs. Wouldn't call it intense aroma, though. More understated and consistent with the flavor.
